Before the First Jingle Bells, Turkey carving, or Ho Ho Ho's, "The Company" gets you into the holiday spirit with their annual "Singin' and Dancin' into the Holidays 2012", aptly named "A Merry Como Christmas", because it features family of the famous crooner, Perry Como. As of 1985, his daughter, Melanie Como, has been the Driving force of "The Company", directing and producing these productions. Melanie Como-Dits, Wendy Como, and Paige Como are granddaughters, with the new introduction of Great-Granddaughter Abigail Como.
We feature the most professional vocalists in town and perform tight harmonies that take months to perfect. This year, “A Merry Como Christmas” brings back highlights of our men performing their favorite homage to the Rat Pack and the Jersey Boys! The females take the stage with the Andrews Sisters, MacQuire Sisters, and their favorite music from the band Abba. This year there are many surprises, included is a favorite of a huge pair of singing, glittery lips, the ever popular light up Christmas tree, and of course, back by popular demand, the three headed Santa!
We have been in rehearsal since June, and "Singin' and Dancin' into the holidays, 2012" is a new production, highlighting new songs, and Soloists.
Costuming takes center stage, as "The Company" prides itself in its flashy costumes and lightning fast costume changes for the entire cast.
This holiday production is as close to Vaudeville, with a touch of the spirit of cabaret as you will find in the Midwest! "The Company" tries to make you feel like you are a part of our "family". So we include you, the audience, in little jokes going on on stage. We, would like you to feel like you have left the real world and are a part of the magic that happens in the theatre! We are proud to share this production with you and hope you will leave with a song in your heart and the holiday spirit in your soul!
