Every Christmas Story Ever Told by The Seaside Repertory Theatre

December 4-5, 11-14, 18-21 at 7:30pm

December 14 and 21 at 2pm

25 Grand Park

Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

Admission: Tickets are $12.50/students, $25/adults

Three actors, in what starts out as a pared-down version of the Dickens classic, stage a mutiny and, in an effort to breathe new life into an old tradition, attempt to tell “Every Christmas Story Ever Told” in the space of 50 minutes. Nothing is spared in this rollicking tour de farce! The story of the stingy and sour Ebenezer Scrooge is there too, but it seems the actors have overlooked “It’s a Wonderful Life,” so Scrooge morphs into Jimmy Stewart combining two of the greatest Christmas stories ever told.
