Florida Studio Theatre (FST) is excited to bring children and their families the magic of the holiday season with the latest iteration of Deck the Halls. This interactive family-friendly, music-filled show celebrates everything that makes Hanukkah and Christmas in Sarasota special. Since Deck the Halls was first produced in 2016, the show has become a holiday tradition for many families here on the Suncoast. This year, the festivities return with all-new sketches, all-new songs, and all-new memories ready for the making. Created by Sarah Durham and Caroline Saldivar, Deck the Halls plays select Saturdays and Sundays starting December 3 in FST’s Keating Theatre. Deck the Halls is part of a four-show subscription package. Also included in the Children’s Theatre Series subscription package is Charlotte’s Web, a heartwarming adaptation of E.B. White’s inspiring story, The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe, an inventive retelling of the timeless classic by C.S. Lewis, and The Last Acorn & Other Winning Plays, a collection of award-winning plays written by elementary school students from around the world. Subscriptions for all four Children’s Theatre shows are now on sale for only $20—just $5 per person per show. Single tickets are also available for $10 per ticket. Subscriptions and tickets are now on sale at 941.366.9000 or FloridaStudioTheatre.org. Inspired by the community and popular culture, this year’s rendition of Deck the Halls will lovingly spoof everything from outrageous baking shows and Hallmark holiday movies to snowbirds and limited Sarasota parking—all shared through a family-friendly lens. Audiences can also expect classic holiday songs—such as “Frosty the Snowman” and “The Eight Days of Hannukah”—and original comedy sketches featuring four of Santa’s favorite elves. Cast in this show are Cameron Clements, Linnzie Hays, Athena Jean-Étienne, Deonta Mitchell, Keegan Penny, and Storm Tracy, all members of FST’s Acting Apprentice company.
