Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Drama is life with the dull bits cut out," which explains his penchant for casting crust-less sandwiches in every leading role.

The Hamner Barber Variety Show captivates audiences with a mesmerizing medley of magic, comedy, and dancing, which has garnered national attention for several of the show's stars. Featured on NBC's World's Greatest Magic, Dave and Denise Hamner’s sorcery produces flocks of exotic birds from unexpected sources such as flying cards, flaming swords, and freshly prepped caesar salads. Sharing the bill with the maestros of marvel, Jim Barber splits sides with a laughter-packed set of ventriloquism. Barber’s act—which was featured on The Late Show with David Letterman—coaxes roars from crowds and their puppet doppelgangers with wisecracking sidekicks and award-winning, family-friendly comedy.
From November to mid-December, the entire production shrouds itself in a flurry of white for The Wings of Christmas, which treats audiences to highlights from the variety show followed by a mélange of songs from seasonal cartoon classics and holiday themes. The talented cast also takes on the mantle of adored characters such as Charlie Brown and the Grinch, who, as played by Jim Barber, dances between a video screen and the stage to sing the villain’s theme song and noisily unwrap audience members’ hard candies.
