An Old-Fashioned Christmas Melodrama and Ice Cream Social

In the past, the holidays at OCC’s Drama Lab have seen battles on behalf of the Peppermint Prince or against Bootsie and the Christmas Pirates—which sounds like a lost George Clinton production, doesn't it? But this year the annual melodrama comes in the form of Monster Battalion to the Rescue—which sounds like a lost Roger Corman production, doesn’t it? And, naturally, there’s the usual reinforcements: the vaudeville breaks, the holiday choir, the as-promised ice cream and a visit from Santa, ideally crashing triumphantly through a skylight as the Monster Battalion faces their darkest moment … or so one can hope. The whole program is kid- and adult-friendly—and free ice cream for all, regardless of age! Now that’s the holiday spirit.

Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 5. Continues through Dec. 14, 2014
