Patrick Spencer, Charlie O'Leary, and Anthony De Angelis' musical An Axemas Story, which played Off-Broadway's The Players Theatre in December 2022, officially opens in its return engagement at the venue December 2 following previews that began November 30.
Produced by Cartwheels Theatrical and directed by Mackenna Goodrich,
the holiday-themed take on '80s slasher films will run through December 17.
The cast includes Charissa Bertels (A Christmas Story), Alex Canty (Million Dollar Quartet national tour), RJ Christian, Cat Greenfield, John Alejandra Jeffords, Isabel Julazadeh, Lucy Rossi, Brandon Roth, Brooke Searcy, Atticus Shaindlin, and Chris Trombetta.
An Axemas Story is set during Christmas time in Tree Town, and all the trees are dying to look their best. After a string of disappearances, Small Paul (the puniest tree in Tree Town) and Noel (the mayor's daughter) begin to question Tree Town’s relationship with the venerated Farmer Todd—who has been acting particularly strange as of late.
The production also features scenic and prop design by Lauren
Barber, costume design by Stephanie Disher, and lighting design by
Jacqueline Scaletta. Stephanie Fisher is the stage manager.
