Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and join Tony Award winner Joanna Gleason as she hosts a magical concert to benefit the Playhouse. Along with her vocal group the Moontones (with musical direction by Jeffrey Klitz), the concert will feature Playhouse favorites and new faces sure to become audience favorites.
This evening of music will include holiday classics (“White Christmas,” “Let it Snow,” and “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm”) as well as new favorites (“One More Sleep 'til Christmas” from The Muppet Christmas Carol, “Jack’s Lament” from The Nightmare Before Christmas, John Lennon’s “So This Is Christmas”, and “Hanukkah in Santa Monica”).
Joining Joanna Gleason and the Moontones will be Kristen Hahn (WCP: Script in Hand Playreadings, Our Town), Sandra Marante (WCP: In the Heights), Molly Pope (critically-acclaimed cabarettist at Joe’s Pub, Feinstein's/54 Below), Heath Saunders (NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar, Broadway’s Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812), Clay Singer (WCP: Romeo & Juliet, Man of La Mancha), and the Music on the Hill Handbell Ensemble (under the direction of Ellen Dickinson and David H. Connell).
