Fountain Hills Theater Presents CHRISTMAS JUKEBOX, 11/30-12/23

by BWW News Desk
Fountain Hills Theater has announced the return to its stage of the interactive holiday musical revue, Christmas Jukebox. In this one-of-a-kind Holiday Musical, audience members who arrive at least 15 minutes before curtain, are invited to select their favorites from our giant jukebox of over 100 of the greatest holiday songs ever written. The choices are tallied and a brand-new holiday revue, created by the audience, is brought to life before their very eyes by our talented and versatile cast. Each show is as unique and as different as the audience that created it!
When no two shows are ever the same, it can be - to put it mildly - a challenge. As exciting for the performers as it is for the audience, a great part of the show takes place backstage out of the audience’s sight. Christmas Jukebox requires an amazing cast of actors whose versatility is put to the test each night as they adapt to the demands of each evening’s audience. During the half hour before curtain, the cast mingles with the audience, and collects their jukebox selections for the evening. Those selections are then carried backstage where the choices are quickly tallied and the most requested songs are compiled. With the help of the staff, songs are frantically put in dramatic and comedic order, divided by style, duets and ensemble numbers and then with literally only minutes to go until curtain, the final list is copied on to a giant whiteboard which is posted backstage, just in time for the cast to make their first entrance! Christmas Jukebox is created and directed by FHT’s Artistic/Managing Director Peter J. Hill, choreographed by Noel Irick and musically directed and accompanied by Bill Moore, with musical arrangements by Reynaldo Saenz. The show features Kathy Donald, Alex Gonzalez, Noel Irick, Amy Powers, Stephen Serna and Hannah Zieser.
Christmas Jukebox is a great way to spend an evening with family, friends or co-workers. Bring 10 people and receive $2 off per ticket!
