Christmas time is also a time to have fun. A time to take the family out and spend time together outdoors.
One of the favorite things to do is to watch a movie or, more interestingly, to see a live production.
A fan's favorite production is Desert Star's parody of ‘The Nutcracker’, called ‘Men In Tights.’
And, once again, Desert Star has done what it does best: Provide a witty version of a Christmas classic.
The show is currently running at the Murray Playhouse, where it will remain until December 31st.
It starts with a man dressed in a red shirt with a green tie and a white tutu prancing on stage, then three more men dressed in the same manner follow, and the crowd goes hysterical.
The men crack the audience up with their attempts to deliver a perfect ballerina routine.
They turn and twirl hilariously, but the climax of the show is when the men spin, showing their boxers and one of them stole the audience's breath when he revealed a big ‘rear’ attached to his tutu.
Choreographer Allison Cox told Daily Herald in an interview that it was a very tough job teaching people who knew nothing about dancing to dance, but it has been an absolute delight!
The Nutcracker debuted December 18, 1892, at the Imperial Mariinsky Theatre in Russia. It's one of the most performed Christmas shows.
The Desert Star's rendition of this classic is as an avenue to raise money to get them out of their messy situation. The town has a broken sewer and is in urgent need of funds to fix it, so putting on a show might be a very good idea to start getting funds.
It'd be amazing to catch a live performance of this show, although watching the video has been an absolute delight!
A huge thumbs up to everyone who participated in the production! It's a huge success. Merry Christmas everyone!
