It’s a Tony Starlight Christmas!
A Holiday Extravaganza!
Remember the classic holiday TV shows of your childhood, when entertainers like Bing Crosby and Dean Martin spread the holiday cheer far and wide and you couldn’t help but feel the warmth and glow of the season? Now in its 12th year, It’s a Tony Starlight Christmas brings back these uplifting holiday traditions and puts a fresh, comedic spin on them.
Tony has joined forces with Bo Ayars (arranger and conductor for Liberace) to put together a music and comedy Christmas program like nothing else. No other show has swinging standards, comedy routines that lampoon Millennial and Generation X culture, impressions of Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Jimmy Durante, Neil Diamond, Louis Armstrong and more. Tony and Barbara Ayars also perform songs from such holiday specials as The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Scrooge and several of the Rankin/Bass animated specials like The Year Without A Santa Claus and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, complete with character voices. The show is both silly and sweet and sure to put you in the holiday spirit.
This series of shows in December sells out every year!
