Take one seasoned local director with a true knack for comedy and three honest ta' goodness "wild n crazy guys"... and you get a hilarious gift you won't need to return. This years holiday home run? Theatre Du Jour presents Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And then Some) by John K. Alvarez, Michael Carleton and James FitzGerald.

Instead of performing Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told -- stocking stuffed with Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture, and every carol ever sung. A madcap romp through the holiday season!

"I look for shows to direct that make me laugh. I love to laugh and I love to make others laugh...and this show makes me laugh"! mused Director Sherri Metz.

With eight comedies under her belt, Metz is pleased to present her bonafide "fruitcake of a cast" for this interactive, touring dinner theatre experience to three exclusive venues throughout CNY. The cast includes local favorites - Scott Bandla, Matthew Flemming and Derek Potocki.

"I was looking for three ordinary guys with alot of energy and a talent for impersonations. What I found were three extraordinary guys with endless energy and a HUGE talent for impersonations! They don't just mimic different characters...they BECOME those characters. These guys get the comedy in this play and take it to the enth degree. I don't need to drive this team of raucous, ridiculous reindeer...I just need to jump in the sleigh and hold on!!"

Take the ride with them... ECSET (ATS) slides into town November 30th, (The Eis House) December 7th (GS Steamers) and December 12th.
