TCT on Tour

Behind every great Man-in-Red, is a great Woman-in-Red! She’s making a list and checking it twice! When the holiday is threatened by a severe outbreak of the North Pole Pox two days before Christmas, and Santa himself is quarantined, it’s Mrs. Claus to the rescue! She has less than 24 hours to figure out how to pull off the best Christmas ever. Good thing she has a team of elves and Christmas creatures to work out the details. With traditional carols and a world-premiere script, this holiday musical is about leadership, goodwill and teamwork.

Tickets available for the Saturday, December 21 at 11 AM performance only. Other shows are SOLD OUT.
