The Gem Theatre celebrates its 20th anniversary with two fun, energetic holiday shows. Specially adapted for the holiday season by the show’s original choreographer and director, The All Night Strut Holiday Show! showcases actors’ hoofing abilities with dances from the 1930s and ’40s and a substitution of every other floorboard with lava. The two-act musical sets dances against a series of high-energy, historically relevant vignettes as music by Duke Ellington, Frank Loesser, and Hoagy Carmichael swings and swoons around them. Penned by Late Nite Catechism author and comic Maripat Donovan, Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold weaves an interactive tale of an intrepid nun searching for the whereabouts of stolen gold with CSI-gleaned skills, detective tools, and a living nativity scene made up of hastily costumed audience members.
Connected by a single lobby, the Gem and Century Theatres share a history that dates to the early 19th century and includes a record-setting full-building move of 1,350 feet to save it from demolition. Inside, meticulously restored woodwork and tiling provide a haven for the eyes when overpowering belly laughs force them to turn away from the stage.
