For Immediate Release
THE ZIEGFELD THEATER PRESENTS A FAIRLY POTTER CHRISTMAS CAROL FOR A SECOND TIME
The Ziegfeld Theater is pleased to bring an updated and revised telling of its original parody musical back to the stage, combining the magic of wizarding and the magic of Christmas into a heart-warming musical parody for the whole family.
November 26 - December 23, 2016
OGDEN, UT-November 1, 2016- Concluding its season “The Best of Times is Now,” The Ziegfeld Theater is pleased to bring its original Christmas musical back to the stage with more family fun, bigger laughs and lots of heart.
It’s the most magical time of the year! A Fairly Potter Christmas Carol tells a hilarious and heartwarming Christmas story with an exciting original score by Rick Rea. While lovingly poking fun at the characters and universe of Harry Potter, this magical story combines elements from holiday favorites such as A Christmas Carol, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and more!
You might call it “A Tale of Three Scrooges.” Dumbledore is forced to hire his childhood rival, Father Christmas (Santa!), and things at Hogwarts transform dramatically. Harry, who hates Christmas due to his difficult family history, wrestles with these changes and it’s up to Ron and Hermione to bring their best friend back to his old self. Meanwhile, Voldemort, depressed by his unhealthy obsession with killing a teenage boy, plots to kidnap Father Christmas, take over Christmas, and then… the world! As the plot unfolds in this comedic spoof, don’t be surprised if you also shed a tear or two.
A Fairly Potter Christmas Carol is directed by Eb Madson and Rick Rea and choreographed by Jessica Hollingsworth and Rick Rea.
The Ziegfeld Theater continues its fourth season in 2016 as a non-profit arts organization with an original parody musical. Under the executive leadership of Caleb and Morgan Parry and the artistic leadership of Rick Rea, the theater pursues a mission of “Professional Standard, Community Spirit” as it strives to bring quality entertainment to diverse audiences in Northern Utah.
