Bring Farmers Alley Home for the Holidays
For a lot of people, going to the theatre is a holiday tradition. Whether it's The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol, getting dressed up and seeing live theatre is just as important as trimming the tree, baking the cookies, and setting out a treat for Santa. Farmers Alley Theatre in Kalamazoo has their own tradition of producing musical revues this time of year and 2020 is no different. Get your tickets for Home for the Holidays, a virtual cavalcade of Kalamazoo talent virtually visiting your home to spread some holiday cheer.
Streaming digitally on Broadway On Demand from December 12th-24th, Farmers Alley Artistic Director Jeremy Koch said in an interview with RKR's Stefani Bishop, quote:
Home for the Holidays is basically a love letter to our home and everything that that word means... and we're also tying in home grown talent and homegrown organizations that lend themselves to the tremendous wonderful, beautiful community we live in.
"The homegrown talent is what I'm really excited about," Koch said, proudly. Performing are Nat Zegree, Joriah Kwamé with an original song called Candy Cane Lane, Whitney Weiner, Jasmine Franklin, Andrea Arvanigian, Julie Nemitz, Rhea Olivaccé, and so many more. "One of my favorite moments is The Gold Company, the award winning vocal jazz group at Western... sings a powerful acapella version of John Lennon's Imagine. You'll love that when you see it. I promise."
But Home for the Holidays isn't solely a musical revue. The classic poem The Night Before Christmas will be read by some familiar Kalamazoo faces, including one of the hosts of the WRKR morning show, Stefani Bishop.
Home for the Holidays is streaming December 12th through the 24th. Click here for tickets, and bring some local theatre in to your home and heart this holiday. For WRKR's full interview with Jeremy Koch, click below.
