Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre brings new tradition to the holidays
December 9, 2011
Grand Lake’s festive Christmas tradition returns to Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre this December.
For the third year in a row, RMRT presents “Home for the Holidays,” an evening of joyous tunes and heart-warming performances from some of the theatre’s most popular alums.
This year’s cast is considered bigger than ever before, as Elizabeth Lanza, Erin Crabb, Keely Vasquez, Joe Carroll, Devon Norris and Dylan Paul return to Grand Lake to perform fresh, new arrangements of Christmas and winter songs, enjoy a few holiday laughs, as well as share their favorite Grand Lake Christmas memories.
“Home for the Holidays” began as an original production at the Rep., created and directed by Artistic Director Michael Querio, and has quickly become a popular seasonal tradition in Grand County. “I always look forward to returning to Grand Lake for this production,” said Querio. “Grand Lake means so much to me and the cast – to perform for Grand Lake at this time of year is a real treat. Knowing that so many people have started to make this weekend a holiday destination is something really special.”
Decorations at the new theatre complex are already complete, as Rocky Mountain Repertory plans something special for the residents of Grand Lake. This year, the theatre kicks off the weekend with a free community night at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, appropriately titled “Deck the Halls.” Festivities include caroling and free refreshments, followed by a showing of the holiday classic “White Christmas” in the theatre auditorium.
