Make the holidays PERFECT with Christmas@theplayhouse!

by on December 9, 2011

Christmas @theplayhouse is proud to present Picture Perfect Christmas, the latest edition of Fredericton’s favourite holiday show.  With a host of colourful characters, vibrant musical numbers, and a talented ensemble of Fredericton-based performers and musicians, audiences will be taken on a journey of discovery where the true meaning of Christmas is found and celebrated.

Running December 15-18 at The Fredericton Playhouse, Picture Perfect Christmas follows two people who strive for perfection, each in their own way. Filled with joy, laughter, redemption, and lots of music, it’s the perfect way to get your family into the Christmas spirit.

Directed by Tania Breen, and featuring original musical arrangements by award-winning composer/musician Michael Doherty, this production has something for everyone.  “We’re so thrilled to be working with another incredibly talented group of performers this year, new and old,” says Breen, “Their commitment and talent has definitely fuelled our creative energy in writing this show, and Michael Doherty’s new musical pieces support the story beautifully.”

Continues Breen, “The arc of our story revolves around the value of letting go of perfection, and being able to find beauty in the simplest of things. The energy and enthusiasm among the cast has been fantastic, so we’re really pleased to see it all come together.”

Cast members have been hard at work in preparation for what has become a holiday tradition among local audiences.  Christmas @theplayhouse has enjoyed a long tenure in the capital city as one of Fredericton’s favourite Christmas shows.  This year marks the 10th edition of this holiday staple, and the creative team behind the production have been hard at work.

Tim Yerxa, Executive Director of The Fredericton Playhouse, explains that “what makes this production so popular is not only the incredible music and spectacle, but the home-grown talent it showcases– ­that community connection.”

Christmas @theplayhouse: Picture Perfect Christmas runs December 15-17 at 7:30pm, and December 17 and 18 at 2pm.  Tickets are on sale now at the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at
