Sweetheart in a Chicken Coop
The Moonshine Revival Tent
In Sweetheart in a Chicken Coop, a young fellow falls in love with a girl who's been transformed into a chicken -- but his mean and feckless fiancee won't let anyone take anything that's hers, even though she's not even sure if she likes him. This American fairy tale is told in the Moonshine Revival Tent's fusion of storytelling and choral song, and accompanied by a few extra treats (including a short, sweet snippet of puppetry) and some delightful musical guests.
Sugar Plum Gary
In what has become a Christmas tradition for the brave, somewhat beloved and sometimes celebrated comedian and storyteller, Emmett Montgomery returns to 18th and Union to put on red footie pajamas with Santa Claus faces for feet and become Sugarplum Gary, a "Santanist" who used to not believe in Christmas until one magical Christmas Eve when Santa came to visit and he was the only survivor. Haunted by the visions that now dance in his head, Gary answers questions from the audience about the festive fun and cosmic a horror of the holidays, a magic that is real and ancient and as deep as the space between the stars, in an effort to educate and entertain and ensure that everyone survives the night.
