The ghouls, goblins and ghosts have had their fun and now we look forward to turkey dinners, autumn pies and holiday trimmings. Around the Coaster theatre this means opening the final show of the season, the hilarious and romantic musical Once upon A Mattress. The holiday show holds a special place in our hearts at the Coaster Theatre, since 1972 they have delighted generations of theatre goers. From classic holiday themed shows such as A Christmas Carol to Irving Berlin’s White Christmas and classic musicals from My Fair Lady to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, a Coaster Theatre holiday show is a time-honored tradition.
As the cast and crew put the final touches on our 43rd holiday show, here are a few theatre related articles we found intriguing over the last month.
