Tis the Season for Pointy Ears, Pink Dresses and Popularity Contests
December always brings a bevy of holiday shows – folks wassailing about yuletide, snow, and crackling fires.
Well, Southern California has never really been one for logs piled high. The only snow we typically have to worry about is the white that sneaks into our hair after age 50.
So it follows that C&L’s holiday show will bunt the traditional in favor of the unique and modern.
We’re celebrating the season by featuring an evening of music centering around the themes of love, murder, weirdness, excelling in school, and trying not to kill everyone you know.
Specifically, a concert featuring the music of Larry O’ Keefe (composer of Bat Boy, Legally Blonde, and recent NY cult hit Heathers).
Bat Children, Blondes and Heathers include:
Jeff T. Buco
Caleb Mills Stewart
Carlos Felipe Flores (Guitar), Jon Lee (Drums), and Jennifer Lin (Piano)
Direction by Joanna Syiek
Musical Direction by Jennifer Lin
Assistant Direction by Mitchell Webb
Sound and Lighting Design by Corwin Evans
Stage Management by Juliana Scott
A Very Merry Larry O’ Keefe Concert toasts the holiday season with the work of Laurence O’ Keefe, composer of such Broadway and Off-Broadway hits as Bat Boy, Legally Blonde: The Musical and Heathers.* Experience the seedy underbelly of human emotion this December with dynamic rock musical theatre fare. It’s about to get hot up in here. And we’re not talking about chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
