Due to popular demand, 27 Santas and an Elf Called Kevin is adding New York City Performances for the holiday vacation week. The 60-minute holiday show, with original book and music by Andy Street and Jonathan Kydd, will play at the Broadway Comedy Club in Times Square and tour area theaters December 7-28, 2014. Tickets to the Manhattan performances can be purchased for $30-60 via Ovationtix (866-811-4111) For more tour dates and discount tickets to NYC performances online go to www.nysanta.us.
Children of all ages have heard Mr. Streets original compositions in many of the popular children’s TV shows in the past decades. Most known for the award winning "Madeline", Mr. Street has composed and arranged for “Strawberry Shortcake”, “Angelina Ballerina”, “Double Dragon”, “Hurricanes” and “Ultraforce”.
Mr. Street is very excited to be bringing a variation of the British Holiday Pantomime to the New York stage. The theatrical form is a huge hit on nearly every West End stage in London during the holidays. Silly slap-stick fun for all ages is combined with witty banter, great music and even some dance, with the help of Choreographer, Kelly Dacus-Smith.
A troupe of performers take on multiple characters, headed by Walt Frasier (Lilyhammer, Royal Pains, Blue Bloods) as both Santa and the evil twin Gunta. Patrick Reidy takes on the other title role, Kevin, but also appears as McNasty the Goblin. Elizabeth Greenfeld, William Goulet Kean, and Laurice Fattal all play multiple characters from elves, reindeer and a few other characters you will just have to witness for yourself.
The award-winning producing team of Randy Donaldson (Scottsboro Boys, Pee Wee Herman, Triassic Parq, Falling for Eve), John Velasco-Mills and Marc Jacobson invite you to this wonderful show that is sure to become a permanent New York City holiday destination.
