‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
Adapted from Clement Clark Moore by Catherine Bush | Music by Dax Dupuy
“...And all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” It’s Christmas Eve and Clem has no money to give his family presents or even to pay his rent. He puts his children to bed, believing there is hope for a Merry Christmas. “Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter” and a truly magical night begins that Clem and his family will never forget. See Clement Clark Moore’s poem brought to life on stage as only the Barter Players can. It’s pure Christmas magic.
Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol
A Ghostly Christmas Story by Tom Mula
“Marley was dead to begin with. That must be clearly understood or nothing wonderful can come of this story.” Finally we get to hear the tale of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol told from Marley’s perspective, which is wonderful indeed. Desperate and locked in a torment of his own creation, Marley gets one chance for redemption. He must redeem his former partner, Ebenezer Scrooge. This begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge’s heart is certainly opened, but not before Marley – in his irreverent, funny and deeply moving story – discovers his own.

By David Sedaris | Recommended for mature audiences due to language and subject matter
This outrageous holiday comedy stars Crumpet, a rebel without a Claus, who recounts his true-life tale of being an out-of-work writer doing a stint as a Macy’s department store elf. His encounters, as an Elf during the season of forced joy, have become a delightful cult classic for those in need of a holly-jolly antidote! A delightfully absurd look at the commercial Christmas season, Sedaris’ sharp and hilarious observations have rapidly become one of the nation’s most popular holiday shows.

January Jams: The Collection
Indie Folk | For Fans Of: Mipso, The Head & The Heart, Pinegrove, Annabelle’s Curse
Genre: Indie Folk For Fans Of: Mipso, The Head & The Heart, Pinegrove, Annabelle’s Curse On the surface, the name of NC band The Collection’s new album, ‘Entropy,’ may seem deceptive. Over the four years since the release of their chamber pop, 25-piece ensemble debut, ‘Ars Moriendi,’ the band shed enough weight to become an efficient touring band, garnered praise from NPR and American Songwriter, toured nationally with bands like The Oh Hellos and Lowland Hum, and performed dynamic sets at CMJ and New Music Seminar as an official “Top 100 Artists On The Verge.”
January Jams: Penny & Sparrow
Indie Folk | For Fans Of: Bon Iver, Johnnyswim, Drew Holcomb, Josh Garrels
Genre: Indie Folk For Fans Of: Bon Iver, Johnnyswim, Drew Holcomb, Josh Garrels Joy and pain walk hand in hand on ‘Finch,’ Penny & Sparrow’s magnificent sixth album. Written during their first major break from the road in years, the record finds the band reckoning with a prolonged period of intense personal transformation, a profound awakening that altered their perceptions of masculinity, sex, religion, divorce, friendship, vanity, purpose, and, perhaps most importantly, self. Deeply vulnerable and boldly cinematic, the resulting songs blur the lines between indie-folk and alt-pop, with dense string arrangements and atmospheric production underpinning soaring melodies and airtight harmonies from Baxter and his longtime musical partner, Kyle Jahnke.
