Your Holiday Hit Parade • A Seasonal Celebration

Nov. 22 – Dec. 23 

Enjoy holiday hits of yesteryear alongside contemporary charmers in this tuneful new revue created by Portland’s own musical theatre maestro Rick Lewis (creator of A Taffeta Christmas and Christmas on Broadway) and Broadway Rose co-founder Dan Murphy. In an old forgotten hotel, ghosts of Christmas music past materialize to perform anew the classics of the ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s – and pick up a song or two from the current day courtesy of a pair of spirited tourists.

Director's Note

When we went looking for a holiday show for this season, we knew what kind of a show we wanted: One with an incredibly thin storyline on which to hang a lot of beloved Christmas tunes. And who better to make that happen than Rick Lewis! He graciously accepted the challenge of collaborating with me on the creation of this show and it has been a treat all these many months. Not only has Rick worked on over 20 shows here at the Broadway Rose over the years – whether it be as an actor, music director, or writer – but together we have probably worked on over 30 shows between here and various cruise ships around the country. There is a shorthand we enjoy and we clearly have a similar sense of humor. The tricky thing is hoping others find us as amusing as we do!

This has been a labor of love and the idea of bringing a little seasonal cheer to our patrons was a joy. We really had a great time coming up with a funny plot. We sat and laughed and came up with all sorts of wacky premises. It was important to us that people come to the show and just enjoy themselves – leave their troubles behind and spend a couple of hours with us getting in the holiday mood.

It has never made any sense to me that the holidays are considered stressful. I hope that you, sitting here reading this, are able to exhale, relax, and remember that the holidays are truly about family and friends and helping others less fortunate. Take delight in the tunes you haven’t heard in awhile and relish the new ones you will make part of your Christmas future.

One of the definitions of celebrate is “to acknowledge a significant or happy day or event with a social gathering or enjoyable activity.” Thanks for celebrating the season with us, and here’s to a happy, healthy 2018!

Dan Murphy
