SAN DIEGO–What happens when science meets religion, when materialistic gift-giving meets the Gift of the Heart, when the Three Magi meet St. Nick – aka “Santa”? A hilarious romp through history and all the way to the North Pole, dragging poor 15-year-old Emilia along for the ride.
Vaudeville flavored comedy and moments of touching poignancy make this a not-to-be-missed play great fun for the whole family. In his review, Rob Hopper (National Arts Digest) says “Emilia turns out to be a very cute and imaginative addition to Christmas lore. …”
Talent to aMuse Theatre Company’s Emilia’s Sugarplum Nightmare” is a show written for adults that children will also enjoy.
An original musical comedy written by local playwrights George Weinberg-Harter and Gail West, it was performed in venues around San Diego county from 1999 – 2001 and has been re-tooled and updated.
Both irreverent and fun, it also touches on issues such as gift-giving materialism, science vs. religion, gender inequality and Christmas.
The performance dates and times: December 10, 14, 15, 17, 21, 22 at 8 p.m., December 11 at 7:30 p.m. with two matinee performances on December 21 and 22 at 4 p.m.
