Every Christmas Story Ever Told 

When: Dec. 1-17 2017
Price: $20-$22
Not sure which holiday-themed performance to see this year? Why not see them all in a single sitting? In lieu of its previously scheduled production of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll's House, Lake City Playhouse is staging Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!), a merry mélange of all the tales we associate with the yuletide season — although not in any particular order. “It’s about three actors who are supposed to put on A Christmas Carol,” says Daniel Bell, who stars alongside Nicole Delbridge and Todd Jasmin in the three-person show. Delbridge's character wants to perform Dickens’ classic story, but her two counterparts are “sick and tired” of performing the same thing year after year. “We rope her into helping us do The Grinch and a different version of Rudolph so we can’t be sued because Rudolph’s name is still copyrighted and trademarked. We have Peanuts and The Gift of the Magi, and we make fun of holiday parades and Christmas traditions from other countries. There's some Frosty and It's a Wonderful Life and other holiday classics in there too. In the end, we feel that we've done right by staying true to the meaning of Christmas.”

Dec. 1-17: Thu-Sat at 7:30 pm; Sun at 2 pm • $20-$22 • Lake City Playhouse • 1320 E. Garden Ave., Coeur d'Alene • lakecityplayhouse.org • 208-676-7529
