Christmas Karol: A Holiday Intervention Cabaret

Worried about the supply-chain crises and rising cost of Christmas trees, Karol decides to cancel her famous holiday party. It's up to her friends and family - and a few carolers - to save the tradition. Armed with their favorite songs of the season, the friends gradually win over the reluctant hostess. Artistic Director Jay Españo and Christa Retka have conceived and will co-direct this alternately funny, warm, and heartfelt cabaret. Each weekend will feature a different cast of musical theatre performers from the Chicago area. Performances are December 9 to 19.

  • Scott Gryder, Eric Briggs, Alex Iacobucci, Michelle Ortiz, Maria Alexandra, Sara Torre, Joe Lewis, and Heather Bohan
  • Jay Espano and Christa Retka (Co-Directors), Brian McCaffrey (Music Director)
  • Jay Espano, Christa Retka
