Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is celebrates the holiday season with their annual smash hit, “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)” by Michael Carleton, James Fitzgerald, and John K. Alvarez.

“Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)” is back again for another season of holiday hilarity! What begins as another annual production of “A Christmas Carol,” soon devolves into a slightly irreverent look at all of our favorite “Beloved Holiday Classics” including pop culture favorites like “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Rudolph,” “Charlie Brown” and more. Add in topical references that always keep this annual tradition fresh and fun as we send up everything from Dickens to Dr. Seuss in an evening of high octane jollity and frivolity.

“Every Christmas Story Ever Told” is directed by CSC fan-favorite Jeremy Dubin and features familiar faces of this annual story: Justin McCombs, Geoffrey Warren Barnes II, and Candice Handy. This year’s production also introduces Colleen Dougherty as Santa.

It is not recommended for any theatergoers young enough to believe in Santa Claus. Perfect for date nights, families with older children and teens, and outings with friends.
