Holiday House Party
Interactive theatrical fun for the whole family
presented by VORTEX Repertory Company and Austin Children’s Theater
You and your whole family are invited to Austin’s most famous Party Between the Parties, the HOLIDAY HOUSE PARTY. This year it’s in the theatre at The VORTEX on Saturday, December 27, 2008.
Once the wrapping paper has cleared and the leftovers consumed, the New Year is right around the bend. And it’s at this time every year that local socialite Henrietta Hasselfree hosts her annual HOLIDAY HOUSE PARTY.
Bring the whole family to meet our fabulous hostess, Henrietta Hasselfree, as she gets things jumping with an unusual cast of party guests including Tex with the Reindeer Game of the Year, Opie with his favorite holiday story, Nelda the New Year's Hypnotist, grumpy neighbor Mrs. Barrelhead, and of course Father Time, who stops by to start the Craziest-Race-Ever to ring in the New Year. And everyone gets to make a fabulous party hat for the occasion. Filled with surprises, HOLIDAY HOUSE PARTY is an over-the-top audience participation event filled with laughter and fun for the entire family.
The HOLIDAY HOUSE PARTY is more fun than going to the movies (again)
and better than hanging out at home (some more) on the long holiday
weekend. Bring the gang for some live entertainment and come on
out to the Holiday House Party!!
