Join us for a beloved Northeast Wisconsin tradition! Get in the holiday spirit with our 24th annual Christmas show. Diamonds and Gold and Festival Foods present Let Me Be Frank Productions’ all-new comedy musical, “A Frank’s Christmas,” at the Meyer Theatre, November 24-December 30, 2023.
The elves return for another Christmas season of smiles, songs, and a little bit of mischief. Frankie Fuzzballs, Amy Angel Food, Pauly Pockets, Patty Cakes, and newbie elf, Shelfie, have a new job this year. The council has been tasked with teaching Beerntsen’s Candies how to make a true chocolate yule log. However, the assignment at hand is bigger than they anticipated, and they need some reinforcements. After receiving several applications, they’ve narrowed down the pool of applicant elves who seem to possess a lot of great potential. Lisa Lollipop, Sarah Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, and Krampy Krueler are called in to interview. Shelfie seems to be the only elf who sees Kramy Krueler for what he truly is…a Krampus. Why does Krampy want to join the do-gooder elf council? And can Shelfie convince everyone of his true identity before it’s too late? You’ll have to find out in our all-new and all-original Christmas show!
