Traditionally, girls know instinctively how to party and what better time of the year to put on your glitz and glamor than when Santa Claus comes to town, the town of Waterbury that is. The Palace Theater is up for the challenge and “ 'Twas Girls Night Before Christmas" is ready to sparkle one festive night only, Thursday, December 10 at 7:30 p.m.Years ago a wannabe playwright Louise Roche, herself the mother of three little ones at the time,was at the theater one night and came up with the idea for a musical comedy by, for and about women. Her small community theater in England mounted her show and it was such a success that she spent her life savings to stage it big time. After three hit tours in the United Kingdom since 2003, “Girls Night” crossed the pond in 2007 for its United States premiere. Now Roche has designed a new iteration at holiday tine with the original five gal pals as they analyze the past, celebrate their todays and foresee their future together.Meet the born to party Carol, the outspoken tell-it-like-it-is Anita, the issues laden Liza, the designated not to drink driver Kate and the devilish angel Sharon who invites herself along for the ride. Be prepared to bond, to hug and to confess all your secrets as these gals share their lives freely and with panache. Make believe it's karaoke night and plan to sing along as all your holiday favorites are unwrapped from one giant gift box for your entertainment and pleasure. They will take you along as they visit the mall and the in-laws and prepare to celebrate the biggest holiday of the year..For tickets ($45),call the Palace Theater, 100 East Main Street, Waterbury at 203-346-2000 or online at www.palacetheaterct.org. As a special holiday promotion, the Palace Theater and ‘TWAS GIRLS NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS are partnering with Make-A-Wish ® Connecticut and iHeartMedia to help make the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses come true. From now until the night of the show, customers and patrons are encouraged to stop by the Palace’s Box Office lobby to fill out a “Letter to Santa” and drop it inside the theater’s red mailbox display. For every letter received, Macy’s will donate one dollar to the Make-A-Wish ® Foundation.
