Home for the Holidays, written and produced by the North Georgia Acting Company, will be at the PHS auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m.
Is your favorite part of Christmas the warm memories of being home by the hearth with family and friends? Directors of the new Christmas spectacular Home for the Holidays say you won’t want to miss the rare opportunity to experience that warmth on the big stage, complete with all the fanfare, tinsel and trimmings.
“This production celebrates a variety of holiday and family traditions,” said musical director Bay Cagle, who co wrote the play with Ross Galbreath, founder of the North Georgia Acting Company. “We end with a nativity, but throughout the production we celebrate the family traditions. It’s almost like an Americana Christmas.”
Both Cagle and Galbreath, who have teamed up with Get to the Point Dancing and local community choirs to put on the show, say the production is the first of the kind for Pickens County in terms of its breadth and scope. The show is packed with special effects, from snow to dry ice, flashy props and the more than 70 singers, dancers, musicians and actors who will take the stage.
“The quality of this show is like something people have never seen in Jasper,” Cagle says. “You would have to drive down to Atlanta to see something on par with it. Even down to the little bitties we have dancing on stage. They have a top-notch routine. This is something special the community can come share in and be a part of.”
But don’t wait to get your tickets, because there is only one production of Home for the Holidays this year. The show will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. at the Pickens High School auditorium. Tickets are $10 each, but if you bring a toy to the show and donate it you can get a ticket for $5. Toys will be donated to the Jasper Lion’s Club Fill-A-Stocking program.
