STAGE DOOR PLAYERS continues their Sapphire Season of Celebration with a celebration of family - albeit the unconventional, dysfunctional kind - in A NICE FAMILY CHRISTMAS (first place winner - McLaren Comedy Festival). This candid comedy by Phil Olson picks up after A NICE FAMILY GATHERING, and strikes a perfect balance of hilarity and heart under the direction of Ryan Oliveti. Will the magic of Christmas bring the Lundeen family back together? One thing’s for sure - there truly is no place like home for the holidays.
The show opens on Friday, November 30, 2018 and runs through Sunday, December 16, 2018. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2:30 pm. Single tickets are on sale now at the box office (770-396-1726), or online at www.stagedoorplayers.net. Tickets are $33; senior, student, and youth discounts are available.
ABOUT A NICE FAMILY CHRISTMAS:
It's Christmas Eve, and a young newspaper reporter on the brink of being fired has been assigned a last-chance story about a typical family Christmas – his family's Christmas. He goes home to his recently widowed mother, his crazy uncle, his eccentric grandmother, and his battling siblings and their neurotic spouses, who provide no shortage of material. One by one, we learn each family member's secrets, problems, and dysfunctions, and when they learn that he's writing an article with some very personal family information, the fruitcake hits the fan.
