Directed by Dan DePrez, musical direction by Steven Humphrey
Another Night Before Christmas is a two-act, two-person comedy with Book and Lyrics by Sean Grennan and Music by Leah Okimoto. The story takes place entirely on a Christmas Eve and revolves around “Karol”, a disillusioned social worker in her late thirties or early forties, who has given food to a seemingly homeless man (“The Guy”) in the park. A short time he later breaks into her home claiming to be Santa Claus. As she struggles to convince him that he is not Santa, she comes to learn that she is not the person she thought she was. Sometimes it takes a miracle to find joy. This production will be directed by Dan DePrez with musical direction by Steven Humphrey and will run from December 13-22 in the Gathering Hall at Olympic Theatre Arts.
The music is sophisticated Broadway belt style. The numbers range from ballads to upbeat rock.
Karol Elliot: (late 30s, early 40s) Broadway belt. Vocal range: E(3) to E(5)
The Guy: (Ageless) Broadway tenor. Vocal range: B♭(3) to G#(4)
