Christmas shows set at Eagle

Embrace the holiday spirit with Vermillion Players at The Eagle Performing Arts and Conference Center!

After seeing her fiancé kiss another woman at the televised Thanksgiving Day Parade, Mary (Alisha Prunty)'s life falls apart -- just in time for the holidays. Over the next year, she stumbles back into the dating world, where "romance" ranges from weird and creepy to absurd and comical (Anthony Gullo, Joe Nolan, and Noah Welch) with the support and encouragement from her friends and family (Chloe Clayton and Jayne Tyler). It seems nothing can help Mary's growing cynicism, until the charm and innocence of a seven-year-old boy (Logan McCabe) unexpectedly brings a new outlook on life and love.

The story moves along with help from the Doo Wop Chorus (Jamie Martin and Abigail Vernia) as they interject your favorite holiday songs into the tale. This heartwarming play offers a hilarious and modern alternative to the old standards of the holiday season.
