WCStudio at Uptown! will present a concert of holiday music along with a short holiday play. Each year, students share their talents with the community with two shows.
The first – Friday, Dec. 6 at 5 PM – is the perfect way to warm up before the West Chester Christmas Parade. The show ends at 6:30 PM, with plenty of time to see the parade in full, just a block south on High Street. The second show is a matinee at 1 PM on Saturday, Dec. 7. It’s also a 90-minute production.
WCStudio Director Therese Walden Murphy has selected a balanced mix of holiday music, including familiar favorites, along with seldom-heard songs of the season. All are chosen to highlight voices of students in The Broadway Kiddos, The Broadway Kids Cabaret, WCStudio Singers, and Uptown Singers programs. There may also be a sing-along!
Each year, students also perform a short holiday play, featuring aspiring actors from WCStudio’s theater education programs. This year, the play is The Bullies Christmas Carol, a modern twist on a classic holiday tale that is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
In this story, terrible twins Ebbie and Neezer bully their classmates, steal toys from homeless children, and do everything they can to ruin the school’s annual All-Inclusive, Non-Specific Holiday Celebration. But when three goofy ghosts show the siblings the past, present, and future consequences of their awful deeds, they take another look at their choices. Will the badly-behaved duo change their ways in time to save the big show, and themselves? Join the audience at Uptown! to find out.
