In its annual holiday show, the nonprofit, all-volunteer UpStage Theatre delights every age with a fantastical North Pole tale penned by the company’s artistic director. From general admission seating inside the historic and intimate 300-capacity Lambert Hall, audiences cling to the edges of their sleigh seats as the tinseled drama unfolds. Miss Berry, Santa’s head of Toy Central, is responsible for the productivity of her team of elves, who are trying to crank toys out on pace for all the world’s good little boys, girls, and amoebas. Amid good-natured mischief set to an original score and lyrics, Santa’s solution to his time dilemma may be in the inventive hands of his beautiful granddaughter Joy and her shy elven friend Tink. After the show, Santa and his bodyguards pose for a free photo with audience members, who will be emailed their pic.
