"The Familiars"

By Ellen K. Graham
Directed by Angela Astle

December 5 - 28, 2014

When family traditions get in the way of family dysfunction.

Honora Burdock is all about holiday traditions: the meticulously staged family photos, the cookie-baking marathons, even the turducken. But it’s Christmas Eve, the family has gathered, and Honora just doesn’t seem quite…herself. Who of her three children—dutiful but commitment-phobic Kath, people-pleaser/occasional huffer Dom, glamorous and inefficient Chris—will marshal the family festivities in her stead? A comedy about what traditions are worth keeping and what happens when we step off the holiday hamster wheel.

The Sack is Back.

For the sixth straight year Santa’s Big Red Sack is returning to the Avenue Theater once again skewering all the things we hold dear in the sketch comedy billed as "The holiday show you shouldn't take your kids to."

Santa's Big Red Sack has become an annual tradition for those desperately seeking some non-traditional holiday entertainment. It's clever, witty, raunchy and relentless, and definitely not for the easily offended. While the subjects may sound familiar -- Santa's reindeer, Christmas carols, bedtime stories, the Whos in Whoville, gift exchanges and good will -- the scenes are most definitely not predictable. And once again we're mixing in some brand new, over-the-top material with many of the hit sketches from past years.

Kris Kringle takes on the cynics among us in this musical adaptation of the popular holiday favorite. In his inimitable style, Meredith Willson (THE MUSIC MAN, THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN), tells us the classic story of the year. A white-bearded gentleman claiming to be the real Santa Claus brings about a genuine MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, spreading a wave of love throughout New York City, fostering camaraderie between Macy’s and Gimbel’s Department Stores, and convincing a divorced, cynical single mother, her somber daughter and the entire state of New York that Santa Claus is no myth.
