Broadway Rose Theatre Company will present a holiday revue titled “A Christmas Survival Guide” at the Broadway Rose New Stage. Spiked with comedy, tempered with tender reflections and infused with favorite seasonal tunes, this light-hearted revue will de-stress and refresh one and all with holiday cheer. Preview performance is Nov. 26 with opening night Friday, Nov. 28 and continuing through Dec. 21. Evening performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Matinees are at 2 p.m. Sundays and Saturdays Dec. 6, 13 and 20. The New Stage is located at 12850 S.W. Grant Ave., in Tigard.

Tickets start at $30 for adults and can be purchased online at broadwayrose.org or by calling the box office at 503-620-5262.

This intimate revue takes a wry and knowing look at a stressful season. Armed with a copy of “A Christmas Survival Guide” and an optimistic attitude, the characters charge into an urban holiday landscape searching for the true essence of Christmas.

In songs and vignettes, they learn to cope with the season in ways that are both hilarious and heartwarming.

The cast includes Craig Allen, Megan Carver, Ben Farmer and Amy Jo Halliday. The revue was written by James Hindman and Ray Roderick with musical arrangements and orchestration by John Glaudini. Dan Murphy directs and choreographed the production, with musical direction by Jeffrey Childs.
