The Mansfield Music and Arts Society will present "A Broadway Christmas" holiday musical revuew at the MMAS Black Box Theatre for a three-weekend run in December.

The show is directed by Wrentham resident Jennifer Mischley of Wrentham, and the band is directed by Norfolk resident Robert Goldman.

"We've assembled some of the best singers and dancers in the area. Michaela Murphy and Pam Sheiber will bring the house down with their tap dance number called, 'Be a Santa,' Jay Silvi will delight the ladies with a couple of Neil Diamond holiday hits and the entire ensemble gets happy with our 'Christmas Party Medley,'" Mischley said.

"After two successful years of 'Broadway Christmas,' we've enhanced the show with a new set and some great new songs as well as traditional favorites like, 'We Need a Little Christmas', 'O Holy Night' and tunes from 'White Christmas.' Plus, we've added some gorgeous Hanukkah songs like Pam Sheiber (Mansfield) singing 'Mama's Latkes' and John Marcus (Easton), with daughters Addy and Livvy, performing an acoustic version of 'Hanukkah Blessings.' Of course, we had to keep a few favorites like 'Ugly Sweater' and a crazy version of 'Sleigh Ride' just for fun."

"This is a family show, literally," Mischley said.

"We have several families taking part including John Marcus and his teenage daughters Addy and Livvy, Brian and Laura Gustafson with their new baby Olivia, and I've even got my husband, Kevin, and our two little ones Warren and Greta, in on the holiday fun. Plus, we have the ever youthful Libby 'Grandma' Kafka to complete our show family. Children of all ages will enjoy this production and Mansfield students may recognize one of their favorite teachers, Mrs. Liz Parsons. It's a wonderful way for multi-generations to come together and celebrate this joyous season."

This show is wonderful! What a great way to kick off the holiday season. And the art gallery is beautiful; I picked up a painting to give to my parents. I would definitely check out future MMAS productions as well.
