Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), North Fulton’s only professional theatre company, will continue its 2012-2013 20th anniversary season-long celebration with A Taffeta Christmas, “A Holiday Show of 1950’s Pop Classics” by Rick Lewis, directed and choreographed by Ricardo Aponte, running November 7-18, 2012. The production is sponsored by The Mimms Company.
This exciting production is one of many celebrations during the 20th anniversary for this growing north metro professional theatre company. The season opened with the highly successful production of the comedy The Man Who Came to Dinner in September. A Taffeta Christmas runs for two weeks only, closing on November 18. Early reservations are strongly recommended.
About the Play:
Donna, Kaye, Peggy, and Cheryl are back again! When GET first ushered in the holidays with this special show back in 2002, it became the biggest audience favorite and remains one of the largest hits in the history of the Theatre. It ran again in 2003 for GET’s 10th anniversary season playing to sold-out houses. In recent years, A Taffeta Christmas has been one of the most requested shows from our loyal audiences. So now “America’s Little Sweethearts” are coming back with the music and merriment of both pop classics and newly discovered rock and roll holiday songs. Favorite songs include Jingle Bell Rock, Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Christmas Alphabet, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, and more. Join us for “the ginchiest” show in town!
A Taffeta Christmas features a quartet, reminiscent of the popular 1950’s all-girl groups, with a perfect blend of harmony guaranteed to capture the holiday spirit. Audiences will remember Laura Floyd from previous GET performances (Young Judy Garland in Beyond the Rainbow, and Annabelle in Panhandle Slim and the Oklahoma Kid) and Kara Noel Harrington (Olive Ostrovsky in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee). They will be joined by GET newcomers Caleigh Allen and Galen Crawley.
Ticket prices for A Taffeta Christmas range from $25 to $36 (Senior/Student discounts available for select performances). “Recession-Buster” perimeter tickets may also be purchased for $10 or $20 based on availability. 2012-2013 Season Subscriptions and individual show tickets are available now online at www.get.org, or by calling the Box Office at 770-641-1260.
