The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged)

Saturday, December 16 • 8:00 p.m.


The fruitcakes of Reduced Shakespeare Company take you on an irreverent yet heartwarming trip through the holidays in The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged). It’s festive, funny, physical, family fun as these Three Wise Guys send up and celebrate your favorite winter holiday traditions. You can even bring a wrapped Christmas gift of $5 value or less and participate in an audience gift exchange. Let RSC wake up the joyous inner child in us all and evoke the familiar familial dysfunction surrounding the season!

  • LEARN! How Santa saved Christmas!
  • SING! The Ultimate Reduced Christmas Carol!
  • CELEBRATE! Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Saturnalia!
  • CRINGE! At the origin of the term “Nutcracker!”
  • MEMORIZE! New lyrics to “The 12 Days of Christmas” with iPads, not Lords A Leaping!
  • GASP! At the shocking history of our best-loved Christmas traditions


 “The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged) will make your spirits bright, whether you joyfully embrace the upcoming season or get dragged into it kicking and screaming.” – Broadway World
