Holiday shows are a staple of many community theatres’ seasons, and they come in all levels of complexity and cost. But why do them at all? Don’t we get enough holiday spirit from every other corner without feeling like we absolutely have to mount a holiday production? If your talent pool of actors is coming off a big musical production are they going to want to jump into a Christmas (or other) holiday show? Questions like these may scare your troupe away from doing such productions. But maybe you should.
In this episode The Geeks discuss the considerable benefits of doing holiday shows, how they can be fun, relatively easy to put together, and how they provide an outreach to the community that your mainstage season might not.
