MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE RANDAZZOS TO YOU
Mark Holleran, Paul Hatrick, Barbara Brown, Beth Bria, Tracey Marble, Peter Randazzo
For more than two decades, the talented husband and wife team of Peter and Karen Randazzo have been entertaining audiences all over the state of Connecticut, even through New England, and Christmas is their favorite time of the year. This time around is no exception and you can follow their merry trail of tunes in a trio of locations: Cinzano's in Fairfield, Michael's at the Grove (formerly Capellaro's) in Bethel and Adam's Mill in Manchester.
"Christmas in the Air" will feature an old-fashioned dinner theater atmosphere with luncheon and evening performances, with a delicious four-course meal punctuated by rousing musical comedy sketches centered on the holidays. Way back in 1987, the shows were held at the Spinning Wheel Inn in Redding, conceived by Robert Butler who desired a Christmas play designed around a medieval feast.
This year's offering features two different casts from Steppin' Out Entertainment, written and directed by Karen Randazzo. Entitled "Good Day Ludlow's Christmas Special," the show captures the spirit of the day with a sprinkle of sweetness, the embrace of love, the joy of laughter and a hearty helping of family togetherness. Discover what happens when the cast and crew of a show prepare to go on but their guest host has yet to appear. All the songs sung in glorious harmony will warm your heart and make the holidays glow.
