The monsoon season is over, winter visitors are beginning to return and the Quail Creek Performing Arts Guild is thinking about Christmas in general, and Christmas on Broadway in particular since that is the title of the PAG’s 2013 Christmas Show. If you thought you were hearing the melodies of familiar tunes from some of Broadway’s most famous shows, you probably were. Classics from Broadway productions such as South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof, Oklahoma, Guys and Dolls, My Fair Lady, Hair and many more will be brought to life through song, dance and musical compositions. Not to worry, there will be plenty of Christmas songs in the show as well and, rumor has it, that the Elves are traveling to New York to check out Broadway for themselves. If the Elves are in New York, they will miss the wonderful holiday dinner served between the acts of the Christmas Show.
Get a jump on your Christmas shopping by purchasing your tickets to Christmas on Broadway early. The Christmas Show itself, Christmas on Broadway, will be performed December 5, 6 and 7. The first ticket sale date will be Saturday, October 26 in the clubhouse and if you have been here before you’ll recall that, that in itself, is quite an event. Some people begin showing up around 6:00 a.m. to get in line to get tickets. The actual ticket sales will not begin until 9:00 a.m. but to help control the flow and allow people to go home and get breakfast or walk the dog or relax with a cup of coffee and the morning paper; numbers will be given out starting at 7:00 a.m. These numbers will assure each person of their place in line without having them actually stand in line for three hours. The next time tickets will again be on sale will be on Friday, November 15 from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the entrance to the Grill.
Tickets for the dinner, show, tax and gratuity are still only $35.00 per person, are nonrefundable and can be purchased with cash or check but no credit cards. Invite your neighbors, friends and relatives to come enjoy the show with you; tables of 10 are available. Cash bar opens at 5:00 p.m. with dinner and the show starting at 6:00 p.m. If for some reason, you cannot get to either of these ticket sale dates, feel free to call Pam Campbell at 625-2911 or Cyndy Gierada at 445-6829 for tickets.
