When Kris Kringle agrees to serve as a last-minute replacement for Santa in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, he's so convincing that he's offered a job as the department store's house Santa. How can he convince the doubters, including a cynical single mother and her 8-year-old daughter who yearns for something to believe in? Based on the classic film starring Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara and Natalie Wood, this charming stage adaptation is certain to be a holiday delight for the whole family. Ilyse Robbins directs.

Having spent the majority of his childhood in New Orleans, singer/songwriter and musician Chris Smither is heavily influenced by the blues of Louisiana as well as American folk music. Acting off of the advice of his musical hero Eric Von Schmidt, Smither moved to Cambridge, MA and began writing and performing his own songs. He developed a local following and released his debut album I'm a Stranger, Too, in 1970. He has since been performing and releasing his brand of blues-inspired Americana that is best exemplified on the 2006 effort, Leave the Light On. The album featured the hit track "Diplomacy," earned him the 42nd spot on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Best Songs of the Year.
The competition is fierce, fast, funny and family-friendly at this ingenious improv show that pits two teams of sharp-witted performers against each other in an all-out battle for comedy supremacy. With the audience providing suggestions and ultimately proclaiming winners, the squads are challenged to come up with scenes, bits and songs on the spot, in the spirit of TV's "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" A referee watches the action, calling fouls and keeping score, as the players compete in 7 to 12 different improv games each time, out of a repertoire of more than 100. You'll never see the same show twice, and they keep it clean for the kids.
