Yuletide entertainment offered at OCP
Looking for hot wassail and a little entertainment this holiday season? Look no further than the Orange Community Players this week, Friday and Saturday.
Brook Doss directs “Yuletide 2,” a musical evening of Christmas and Broadway, winter wit and wassail. The cast of over 30 will delight audiences with a wide range of holiday music, acting scenes and dance numbers by Rose Thayer Academy of Dance.
“Some of the songs that will be performed are from Broadway musicals. For example, we will be singing “We Need a Little Christmas” from the musical “Mame,” “White Christmas,” from, of course the famous movie/Broadway musical of the same name, as well as traditional Christmas carols, like “What Child is This,” and “O, Holy Night,” said Doss.
“There’ll be some great surprises, including several songs performed by children, scenes and monologues by members of our company, and some fabulous dances choreographed to Christmas tunes by Jill Morris and Rose Thayer Academy of Dance.”
Performers take the stage at 7:37 p.m., Dec. 14-15.
“Yuletide 2 is going to be a great family event, accompanied by some wonderful hors d’oeuvres, wine and wassail,” said Doss.
Tickets for this winter fundraiser are $20. Proceeds go to the OCP Building fund.
The evening starts with hors d’ouvres and wine/wassail at 7 p.m. Sweets and coffee will be served at intermission.
