From the team that created FORKING! and A Merry FORKING! Christmas (playwright Daniel Heath, director Christy Crowley, producer PianoFight), comes the world-premiere holiday action-musical, The Last Christmas. When oil companies threaten to drill in the North Pole, Santa embarks on a mission to save his workshop and Christmas. Teaming up with an idealistic street musician, her ass-kicking sister, and Jesus, this unlikely quartet enters a battle of the bands with a grand prize big enough to buy Santa’s workshop AND the North Pole. But with the oil companies tilting the scales, an evil contest host, and a young pop princess primed to win, can Santa and his rag tag crew rescue the holidays?

$20-$50.

Presented by PianoFight.
