What You'll Get
The first films to incorporate sound were known as “talkies,” just as the word “walkies” was applied to the first plays not starring cardboard actors. Celebrate theatrical innovation with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $22, you get one ticket to see “Home for the Holidays with Bob Hope”, a musical-theater tribute performance and high-tea luncheon saluting Bob Hope, at the Ward Melville Heritage Organization Education and Cultural Center (a $45 value). Choose between the following performances:
- Saturday, November 19, at 11:30 a.m.
- Wednesday, November 30, at 11:30 a.m.
An annual tradition for the WMHO, the Home for the Holidays series enchants audiences with unique, interactive musical-theater tributes to showbiz icons. This season, the charmed and charming life of legendary entertainer Bob Hope is vividly depicted in a living history rife with music and ribald laughter. Performed by St. George Living History Productions, which specializes in filmless biopics about talking humans, the musical salutes Bob’s comic timing, tireless philanthropy, and tolerance of Bing Crosby’s camel banter through songs, stories, and fourth-wall breaks that immerse the audience in the show. Amid the Yuletide-decorated set, guests enjoy a high-tea luncheon of scrumptious finger sandwiches and desserts as the musical glides through vaudeville beginnings, marquee stardom, relentless USO appearances, and 58 honorary doctorates in wooing Dorothy Lamour.
