A Christmas Survival Guide is a side-splitting, uproarious and charming revue that pokes fun at the stressful holiday season. Our characters, armed with a copy of A Christmas Survival Guide and an optimistic attitude, charge into shopping malls, office parties, and family gatherings in their search for the true essence of Christmas. By mixing comedic vignettes, a contemporary score of original music (‘The Twelve Steps of Christmas’, ‘Waitin’ for the Man with the Bag’) and classic songs (‘Silent Night’, ‘Jingle Bells’) these characters search for the true holiday spirit only to find that Christmas keeps getting in the way.

The 5 member triple threat cast includes Sharon Kay White, a two-time winner of the Denver Post Ovation Awards (in 2008, Best Supporting Actress, Dramatic Role for her work in the Arvada Center’s Hollywood Arms and in 2007, Best Supporting Actress, Musical, for her role in the Country Dinner Playhouse’s Guys and Dolls), Sammy Gleason (Cabaret, Beauty and the Beast), Marco Robinson (Brighton Beach Trilogy, A Christmas Carol) Halee Towne (A Christmas Carol, The Full Monty) and Carmen Vreeman (Sunday in the Park with George, Biloxi Blues).
