COMEDY | Welcome to the Annual Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant at St. Everybody’s Non-Denominational Universalist Church. An irreverent yet heartwarming trip through the holidays, full of festive, funny, physical, family fun as these Three Wise Guys send up and celebrate our favorite holiday traditions.
White Elephant Gift Exchange | Bring an inexpensive ($5 to $10) funny, weird, or unusual gift with you to the show. We’ll be doing a gift exchange and you’ll have the opportunity to choose a gift, or steal one from someone else! Examples of the type of gift are: a David Hasselhoff poster, or perhaps a CD of Latoya Jackson’s greatest hits. You get the idea. Be creative!
