For baby boomers and millennials alike, this nostalgic holiday revue will conjure fond memories of sitting around the television watching Christmas specials.
"Christmas Toons" will feature Broadway singers, local talent and students from Gateway to the Arts, the Gateway’s summer education program. McMahon serves as musical director for the performances, which will be filled with song, dance and laughter, as well as a few surprises.
“'Christmas Toons' is truly an original take on holiday classics,” said Kelly Briggs of KCKB Productions. “Beloved Claymation Christmas specials, along with more recent animated shows like SpongeBob, will come to life in a show that’s perfect for the whole family. We may even have a visit from Santa himself.”
