The 2015-16 season of the Campus Performing Arts Series at Missouri University of Science and Technology will continue with a performance of “The Ultimate Christmas Show” by the Reduced Shakespeare Company. The company is known for its fast-paced, seemingly improvisational performances.
The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
“The Ultimate Christmas Show” is a comedic mash-up of Christmas songs and traditions. The three members of the Reduced Shakespeare Company will take a comedic look at the holidays by singing the ultimate Christmas carol, telling the story of how Santa saved Christmas and giving the origin of the term “nutcracker,” among other antics. Audience members are also invited to participate in a $5 or less audience gift exchange.
Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for youth age 18 and younger. Tickets are available to Missouri S&T students with a valid ID for $20. Tickets can be purchased 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday from the Leach Theatre Box Office, located in the vestibule inside the main entrance to Leach Theatre, facing 10th Street. Tickets can also be purchased online at leachtheatre.mst.edu/cpas/15-16/ultimatechristmasshow/.
