After a successful run in 2014, Forte Musical Theatre Guild are thrilled to bring back their holiday show, Naughty but Nice!, winner of two Calgary Critics’ Awards.
“We were really flattered that people loved the show so much last year and, with all the pressure to have a perfect holiday these days, we think it’s a great source of new material for us and a great way to blow off some steam for our audiences,” said Joe Slabe, Forte Musical Theatre’s Artistic Director and the show’s Musical Director.
“Despite some of the risque comedy, we totally honour the ‘nice’ part of the season as well. The takeaway message is that, yes, the holidays can be stressful, yes, the holidays can sometimes create conflict, but at the end of the day, it’s a tradition worth upholding.”
Naughty but Nice! is a seasonal treat that knows that Santa’s Your Daddy and that there’s nothing better than Bailey’s for Breakfast! For those who saw last year’s show, Naughty but Nice! will retain audience favorites like “Elf on the Shelf” and “Brendan the Brown-Nosed Reindeer” but, with new songs and sketches, the evening promises some surprises as well!
Sometimes racy, sometimes sweet, Naughty but Nice! takes a hilarious and slightly risqué look at everyone’s favourite holiday season and promises to leave you with a song in your head and hope in your heart!
Naughty but Nice! runs from December 8 – December 20, 2015 at Lunchbox Theatre, with curtain times at 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and a 3 p.m. matinee on Saturdays and Sundays.
Tuesday performances are pay-what-you-can or $10 to book in advance.
Tickets are available at https://tickets.lunchboxtheatre.com or by calling 403-265-4292.
*Due to some strong language and innuendo, Naughty but Nice! is recommended for audiences over the age of 13.
