Second City’s Dysfunctional Holiday Revue December 11 at the Silver Center

November 30th, 2010 by Adam

Plymouth, N.H.— Funny, bright and original comedy comes to the Silver Center for the Arts at 8 p.m. Saturday, December 11, when The Second City performs their Dysfunctional Holiday Revue.

The Second City specializes in sketch comedy and improvisation and has been delighting audiences for more than 50 years. The troupe, whose alumni include comedians Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd and Joan Rivers, put together a healthy dose of seasonal satire that takes on holiday film classics, family gatherings and even seasonal songs.

Dysfunctional Holiday Revue is for those who may be looking for some comic relief from the stress of the holiday season. Theatre Mania says, “The Second City is here to make light of every holiday misstep, whether it’s making up your own ‘creative’ words to traditional carols, or a disgruntled elf ruining the North Pole’s Christmas party.

Patrons are invited to make a celebratory night out with adult friends to enjoy this not-so-typical holiday fare that is presented for mature audiences.

Tickets are $25-35 for adults and $23-33 for seniors at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-ARTS (2787) or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.
