Did the holidays somehow sneak up on you? Get in the holiday spirit quickly and join the warm, funny, and entertaining cast and crew at Act II for their original production BEHIND THE MUSIC: HOLIDAY TUNES. Sonny Leo  and April Woodall light up the stage, diving into our favorite holiday songs and the lesser-known stories about them. From the strange but true to historically informative—they are all equally entertaining. Their beautiful voices, dry humor, and storytelling abilities hit the spot and help usher in the holiday season.

Matt Silva directs yet another wonderful production. The set is amazing, I felt I was visiting Sonny and April in the warmth of a home that decked the halls. From “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” to “Do you Hear what I Hear?”, we enjoy the best songs of the season, learn something, and have a wonderful evening at an entertaining show that makes us laugh and cry, and gives us some trivia to share at our holiday celebration. Get in the spirit with BEHIND THE MUSIC: HOLIDAY TUNES.
[Act II Playhouse, 56 E. Butler Avenue, Ambler, PA] December 8–27, 2015; act2.org.
