“Scrooge in Rouge” Opens at Rivertown Theatre – Through Dec. 15
NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Christmas is a drag! Get in the holiday spirit with this hilarious quick-change, cross-dressing musical version “somewhat loosely based on the idea of ‘A Christmas Carol’.
Local favorites Ricky Graham, Varla Jean Merman, Yvette Hargis and Jefferson Turner wrote a Christmas musical. We get to have the creators themselves reprise their roles for the Rivertown audiences. The “Royal Music Hall Variety Players” have a widespread case of food poisoning. This leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance of “A Christmas Carol” originally intended for twenty. With bad puns, bawdy vaudeville humorisms, naughty double-entendres, and witty songs, it’s a raucous holiday treat!
