In this one-of-a-kind musical thriller, the spirit of Christmas gets an offbeat in the styles of Tim Burton and Danny Elfman. Crafted by award-winning playwright and composer Stephen Gashler, this enchanting comedy has swiftly become a beloved holiday tradition and is back for its third year, now with even more surprises and laughter. Winner of “Best Music” and two-times winner of “Best Production”, “A Krampus Karol” is your golden ticket to a Christmas experience that’s anything but ordinary.
In this captivating tale, seven mischievous children (played by adults) confront the frightening folktale of Krampus, Santa’s sinister counterpart, who has a unique way of dealing with naughty children: whipping them with branches, stuffing them into sacks, and (for the exceptionally naughty) dragging them down to hell. Though Santa and Krampus once rode together, Krampus has vanished for decades, hiding away in the Austrian Alps. Some say, as the world grows naughtier, he’s waiting for the perfect time to make his return. Though some roll their eyes at the folktale, none of the children laugh when, one by one, they begin to disappear.
“A Krampus Karol” is a thrilling and humorous musical journey that combines holiday cheer with a dash of spookiness and plenty of heart-warming moments, a must-see for the entire family. Don’t miss your chance to experience this delightful and unique Christmas spectacle at the Angelus Theatre.
