Back for a 5th but non-consecutive year thanks to that fucker Covid, SCOTT SHOEMAKER’S WAR ON CHRISTMAS opens December 2nd for a holiday run at Theatre Off Jackson in the International District. The saucy, campy romp stars beloved local perpetual injenue Scott Shoemaker and his tribe of merry makers in a seasonal farce determined to tickle your seasonal funny bone.
Who doesn’t like their seasonal funny bone tickled?
The gist of it all:
Shoes and Pants Productions announces the return of “Scott Shoemaker’s War on Christmas!” Now in its 5th year, this all-star stage spectacular is one of the most anticipated shows of the holiday season. Written by Freddy Molitch and Scott Shoemaker (Ms. Pak-Man, PROBED!), performances run December 2-24, 2022, at Theatre Off Jackson, 409 7th Ave S.
Christmas is saved! Scott will display his obsession with Yuletide traditions to the delight of audiences who need a little extra Christmas cheer. You can expect the unexpected with this cast of queerdos, whose greatest Christmas wish is to bring you joy with their slightly subversive celebrations. It’s a hilarious night of comedy, songs, dance numbers, delightful videos, and partial nudity!
Joining Scott are some of the brightest stars in Seattle’s music, burlesque, and comedy scenes, including Ade, Faggedy Randy, and Mandy Price. Joining this year’s cast is renowned singer, songwriter, and actor Major Scales (Richard Andriessen). He is known for being one half of “The Vaudevillians” along with drag superstar and recently crowned Queen of all Queens, Jinkx Monsoon.
“Christmas is everywhere in November and December, and not everyone is excited by the holidays or feels included, so we created a show that allows everyone to celebrate this time of year, even if you’re on the naughty list, well, especially if you’re on the naughty list,” said Freddy Molitch, co-writer of Scott Shoemaker’s War on Christmas.
