The Living Room has announced their latest holiday show, the world premiere of MILKING CHRISTMAS written by Brian Huther, Ben Auxier, Seth Macchi, and Ryan McCall, also known as Friend Dog Studios and the team behind last summer’s THE BALLAD OF LEFTY AND CRABBE.
Directed by Missy Koonce with music direction by McCall, the production features Elise Poehling (Macey Maid-a-Milking), Seth Macchi (Chris Claus), Ellen Kirk (Mrs. Claus), Bob Linebarger (Santa Claus), Nellie Maple (Citizen Cane/Lt. Puddings), Mike Ott (Jingle B. Elf/Ginger), Brian Huther (Clyde the Coal Miner), and Ben Auxier (Krampsnickle/Christmas Mole).
Set in present day in the cheery but isolated Christmastown at the tip of the north pole, Macey Maid-a-Milking seems to be the only person in all of Christmastown to sense that something strange is going on; toys are coming out wrong, soldiers are out in force, and there must be an awful lot of naughty children, because coal production is higher than ever. Driven by a mission to keep the holiday perfect, she soon finds herself in a lot of trouble – with the future of Christmas hanging in the balance.
MILKING CHRISTMAS runs November 29th – December 23rd. For more information visit thelivingroomkc.com.
