Gateway Theatre presents Home for the Holidays this season, on demand, from the comfort of your home. For 35 years, Gateway has brought its own magic to the holiday season, and while we cannot all gather in front of the stage, you can grab your household bubble in front of the TV or computer.
The traditional year-end extravaganza has transformed into an intimate online tour through some of Gateway’s most successful and beloved musical theatre productions, transporting the viewer right into the homes of the artists themselves.
Gateway Theatre Presents Home for the Holidays
Opening Night Watch Party: December 18th at 8:00pm
On Demand: December 19, 2020 – January 1, 2021
Tickets: From $25, available online now
It all begins with Lauren Bowler’s masterful take on “Wouldn’t it Be Loverly”—revived from Gateway’s 2007 production of My Fair Lady. From there, director Barbara Tomasic has assembled a who’s who of Gateway alumni including Tom Pickett, Meghan Gardiner, David Adams, Chelsea Rose, Scotia Browner and many more, reprising timeless favourites from Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music, Annie, The Music Man, The Wizard of Oz, and knockout Gateway classic Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Think of it as a bespoke best-of package crossed with an intimate fireside toddy, bathed in the amber glow of nostalgia, tailored for an extraordinary time when warmth and togetherness is what we need and crave most.
During intermission, Home for the Holidays even pauses to present its Jingle Bell (Scotch on the) Rocks recipe for the adults and a Holiday Hot Chocolate for the kids. Comic asides, behind-the-scenes visits and so much more come to the variety show-style program. Best of all: you’re encouraged to sing along. Loudly.
If you miss the buzz and excitement of attending opening nights, be sure to tune in to the Opening Night Watch Party. Following the Watch Party, ticket holders will be able to view the show on demand with unlimited access until January 1. There will also be accessible viewing options available including audio description provided by Vocal Eye, ASL interpretation, and captioning in English, Simplified and Traditional Chinese.
