Y’allmark Christmas:



Y’allmark Christmas
Horizon Theatre
through December 23, 2022

This one certainly is not grandma’s standard for a holiday show; nor one for the kiddies who hope to see reindeer landing on the roof and a chubby chap in a red suit. Amber Nash and Topher Payne got together to create this holiday improve show. The premise is that Topher, who you see onstage as the playwright/director has to work on a script he hopes to shoot.

Each night a trio of improvisors take the stage. They could be Freddy Boyd, Kevin Gillese, Eve Krueger (who is co-producer in real life with Lisa Adler), Amber Nash, Jamila Porter, Joshua Quinn, or one of the couple of understudies.

And just in case you think it may be easy to handle the plot as it develops; know that a special guest actor from Horizon or Dad’s Garage shows up every night. Maybe Topher and Lisa know who may be coming to intrude; but most of us don’t

The audience cracks up as the talented cast manage to work through whatever Topher sets in front of them as a glitch. It’s a couple of hours where you can’t help but laugh your way through it. It’s kind of like trying to make sense of what comes out of the mouths of politicians these days.

Plenty of free parking and all seats with good views. More info and tickets at HorizonTheatre.com
