Milking Christmas

A New Musical
By Friend Dog Studios & Ryan McCall

November 30, December 2, 3, 4, 6, 2023

William Inge Memorial Theatre

The matinee performance on Dec. 2 & closing performance on Dec. 6 will be available to view online via livestream. Visit Livestreamed Performances for more information and to reserve tickets.

Macey Maid-a-Milking seems to be the only person in all of Christmastown to sense that something strange is going on—toys are coming out wrong, soldiers are out in force, and there must be an awful lot of naughty children because coal production is higher than ever. Driven by a mission to keep the holiday perfect, she soon finds herself in a lot of trouble – with the future of Christmas hanging in the balance.
Milking Christmas was originally produced and developed by The Living Room Theatre in Kansas City.

This production is not recommended to those who wish to maintain their belief in the goodness of Santa Claus.
