Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays
Peoria Players Theatre
December 17-18


Peoria Players has a tradition of celebrating the holiday season with song and dance. Each year the show features familiar holiday songs that audiences have grown to love over the years. However, this year is extremely special with a cast that will blow you away.

Director Bryan Blanks states, “I’ve had the privilege to work with some extremely talented performers over the years and it’s always been a goal of mine to get them all together on one stage. It seemed like a lofty goal at the time, but after 10 years of directing, my dream has come true with this production Home for the Holidays 2016.”

This production will feature many of the cast members that were seen in Bryan’s most recent theatrical endeavors: Memphis and The Wiz at Corn Stock Theatre and School of Rock and Oliver at Peoria Players.  “What I love most about the show is how beautifully diverse the cast is.” This year’s production not only features some of Peoria’s strongest singers such as Brandon Chandler, Dedra Kaiser, Jeremy Kelly, Katy Ailshie, Bree Carroll, Ayana Pankey, Holly Haines and more, but there are numerous dance numbers that will kick up the energy at Peoria Players on December 17 and 18.

The first act celebrates what the holiday season means to Peoria’s favorite theatre performers, but the second act features these performers tackling holiday impersonations of Shirley Temple, Aretha Franklin, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Justin Bieber and more.

The show will also celebrate the bright future of our young talent in Peoria as members of the Peoria Area Performing Arts Studio will join the cast for a stomping rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Oh Santa” and Stevie Wonder’s “What Christmas Means to Me,” impersonated by Peoria’s own Anthony Hendrix. If you love beautiful harmonies, tap dancing, live music, and music of the
holiday season, then this is the show for you. Home for the Holidays was written and directed by Bryan Blanks and choreographed by Bryan Blanks, Randee Blickenstaff and Sydney Abnour.

Performances include Saturday, December 17 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, December 18 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $15 for all ages and are available by calling the Peoria Players box office at 309-688-4473.
