Cotuit Center for the Arts’ 2nd Wednesday Theater presents a staged reading of Don Zolidis’ comedy, “The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon,” presented by the WatermelonAlligator Theatre Company on Wednesday, December 11, at 7:30 PM. Admission is free.
Christmas is a time for magic, a time for cherished traditions, a time to watch as many original TV movies as a human being can possibly endure. But now The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon offers the sugar rush of six Christmas movies all at once.
Welcome to Hopewood Falls, Vermont, where singles in adorable sweaters converge to look for love. Can disguises help royalty and/or movie stars find the down-to-earth connections they crave? Will evil city slickers destroy charming inns and/or Christmas tree farms? Isn't it a little creepy for a meet-cute to depend on one person being in a coma? Grab a hot chocolate and your favorite wise, single friend to find out in this wildly entertaining parody of holiday rom-coms.
“The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon” features a host of faces familiar to Cotuit audiences, including Kasey Bishoff, Beau Boothman, Genevieve Breitbach, Julie Butler, Holly Cipriani, Bill Driscoll, Christine Ernst, Michael Ernst, Tony Ferreira, Sean MacIsaac, Garrett Olson, Harmonie Olson, Jaden Olson, Ian Rubinstein, Cody Salvesen, Susan Salvesen, Victoria Smith, Erin Trainor, Alex Valentine, and Jess Wilson.
"This is the ultimate holiday channel special you have been pining for!" said Garrett Olson, associate artistic director of WatermelonAlligator. Jess Wilson, artistic director, agreed. “This is just a really fun and fluffy spoof of all those sentimental Christmas romance movies, and we can’t wait to share it with an audience!"
Audiences are encouraged to dress festively and be prepared to laugh—a lot.
Second Wednesday Theater is a monthly play-reading series of rarely performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works. Admission is free, and refreshments are available.
Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. For more information, visit www.artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669.
