The Christmas Voyager — Westchester Broadway Theatre’s Holiday Musical0
By Evelyn J. Mocbeichel
We all have certain people on our gift list that are difficult to shop for each year. What do you give someone who has everything and says, “There is nothing I need”? The solution is simple. Go out together for an evening of fantastic entertainment and a delicious lunch or dinner meal at the Westchester Broadway Theatre (WBT) in Elmsford. It’s featuring the perfect production this season with The Christmas Voyager, based on the book by Robert Fitzsimmons and Kathy Wheeler. The show opened November 22 and it will run through December 23.
It’s billed as a delightful holiday musical and a true celebration of the season. All the splendor of Christmas is brought to life in a magical journey through yuletides past. Holiday songs we all know and love are wrapped up in a heartwarming celebration of spirit that will delight audiences of all ages.
“The star shone down upon the earth a dazzling silver beam while in a far-off galaxy the star was also seen. And so our voyager began his quest to reach that source of light. Two thousand years to find his way and end his astral flight.” Lost in a future time and desperate to return to his home galaxy, our Starman Noel journeys back through time searching for that magical December 24th evening when three brilliant stars came together and changed the course of history. Knowing that these same stars will set him on the right course toward home, Noel journeys around the world and touches down in a small town in America, the North Pole, Dickens’ England and many other places on his quest.
The show features dazzling effects and many favorite Christmas songs — We Need a Little Christmas, Holly Jolly Christmas, Silver Bells, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Deck the Halls, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Let There Be Peace on Earth, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Silent Night, and more. Cast members include Zach Trimmer as Noel/the Starman, Katie Brunson, Jayson Elliott, Bonnie Fraser, Lily Lewis, Tony Triano, Allyson Tucker, and Daniel Scott Walton.
The WBT continually offers gorgeous, creative set design that easily transports the audience to the period of the storyline. Enjoy this production as part of your holiday celebrations with family, friends or as a fun place to gather with co-workers for your business’ annual holiday party.
