The Living Room has announced the return of the holiday musical MILKING CHRISTMAS by Brian Huther, Ben Auxier, Seth Macchi, and Ryan McCall.
Directed by Missy Koonce & Rusty Sneary, the cast includes Elise Poehling (Macey Maid-a-Milking), Bob Linebarger (Santa Claus), Enjoli Gavin (Mrs. Claus), Pancho Javier (Chris Claus), Ellen Kirk (Krampsnickle/Mole/Ensemble), Mike Ott (Jingle/Ginger/Ensemble), Nellie Maple (Cane/Ensemble), R.H. Wilhoit (Clyde/Ensemble), Margaret Veglahn (Ensemble), Haddy Wilczewski (Ensemble), and Eli Black (Ensemble).
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 concerned that things aren’t right; 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. This year’s production will build on the 2017 show with new scenes and songs.
MILKING CHRISTMAS runs December 5 – January 6. For more information visit thelivingroomkc.com.
