Adventure Theatre MTC Presents The Twelve Days of Christmas
The Twelve Days of Christmas runs Nov. 15 through Dec. 30 at Adventure Theatre in Glen Echo Park. Based on the traditional holiday song, this world premiere by Helen Hayes Award Recipient Renee Calarco (2011’s If You Give a Cat a Cupcake) and directed by first-time Adventure Theatre MTC director Michael Dove is a holiday mystery. The Twelve Days of Christmas stars Helen Hayes Award Recipient Deidra LaWan Starnes (star of Charlotte’s Web, 2011’s Helen Hayes Award Winning Outstanding Production-TYA) as Shirley the Partridge, the detective in the case of the missing five golden rings. Christmas celebrations are just around the corner and Shirley the Partridge has got some problems to solve! The French Hens are arguing, the six geese have flown to Florida for the winter and worst of all someone has stolen the Five Golden Rings. What will happen to Christmas?
Tickets are $19 and may be purchased online at www.adventuretheatre-mtc.org or by calling 301.634.2270. Appropriate for all ages.
