Shows such as Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Dickens’ A Christmas Carol are staple performances during Christmastime, but if you are looking for something new or different, you might want to try “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)” at the Apollo Civic Theatre in Martinsburg, WV.
From what I hear it’s a pretty hilarious show that has audience members cracking up. Three main characters give us a funny roundup of every Christmas story known to mankind, with extra tidbits on Christmas customs around the world and interesting holiday references in pop culture (fruit cake, the Grinch, and Rudolph, to name a few).
The story (written by award winners Michael Carleton, James Fitzgerald, and John Alvarez) has been performed on Broadway and all across the country for the last ten years. The cast for the Martinsburg show features theatre veterans Tod Williams, Tim Eichelberger, and Diana Jurand.
The show features so many different characters that people can easily relate to. It is a fun, light-hearted show that everyone of all ages will appreciate. It is a must-see and recommended for the entire family.
In honor of the gift-giving tradition this Yuletide season, the Apollo Civic Theatre continues its outreach program that donates to local food banks. If you’d like to help, bring canned goods to any show hosted by the theatre.
This is just one of the many reasons Martinsburg is such a cool town! I look forward to a repeat performance next year!
