“‘Christmas Is On the Air 2012’ is chock-full of the side-splitting slapstick and comedy routines that have made the evolving, annual holiday show a must-see for the entire family and their visitors," said Grainger Esch, Co-founder and Artistic Director of the Silver Spur Theater.
"This holiday show guarantees relief from shopping overload, decorating duties and party planning," Esch emphasized. “Think of the Spur as a safe, family oasis of laughter far from the chaos of Christmas which is on comedic display on our stage.”
The Spur, located at 108 Royal St., is in the renovated Guest and Sanford Granary & Feed Co., a recently designated historic site in Salado, a CenTex holiday shopping destination. The playhouse, with feed signs clearly visible, is a few blocks from the bustling IH-35 Corridor.
Theater patrons will be right in "the studio audience" for the music, merriment and memorable, mirthful staging of an "on-the-air" radio variety show, Esch explained.
The holiday scenario has been conceived, written and performed by The Spuradicals, the theatre’s cast of seasoned actors who continue the Silver Spur's tradition of homespun, heartfelt, original family entertainment.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, with 2 p.m. Saturday matinees: Dec. 1 (eve. only), Dec 7-8, 14-15, 21-22. Admissions are $18 for adults; $15 for senior citizens, military personnel and students with ID; and $10 for children aged 12 and under for evening shows.
