Skylight Theatre Company and Frier McCollister present Sandra Tsing Loh's “Sugar Plum Fairy” Directed by Bart De Lorenzo

This offbeat and thoroughly original holiday treat offers festive cheer while engaging audiences to participate (think G-rated “Rocky Horror” fun). Appropriate for ages 8 to 80, and beyond, NPR's Sandra Tsing Loh's Sugar Plum Fairy tells the story of a 12 year-old girl who dreams of dancing the lead in The Nutcracker. Audiences are encouraged to come decked out in ugly holiday sweaters, tutus, and Hanukah hats and be prepared to join in the 75 minutes of madcap merriment. Bart De Lorenzo directs with a cast of characters you won't forget. Joining Sandra Tsing Loh are Tony Abatemarco and Shannon Holt. Tickets are on sale now at skylighttheatre.org

“Wildly successful. Ideal antidote for…'A Christmas Carol.' Check out Sandra Tsing Loh's rollicking ‘Sugar Plum Fairy' as a modern glimpse of the Christmas season, and if you sit close enough to the stage you might go home with one of the show's props' - Los Angeles Times

Directed by Bart De Lorenzo, the cast includes Sandra Tsing Loh, Tony Abatemarco, and Shannon Holt.

Sugar Plum Fairy opens at 8:30pm on Saturday, December 1 and runs Fridays at 8:30pm, Saturdays at 3:00pm and 8:30pm and Sundays at 3:00pm until December 23rd. Rutime is 75 minutes with no intermission. Skylight Theatre is located at 1816 1/2 N. Vermont Ave, LA, 90027. Tickets are $15 - $43, includes tickets for Children and Seniors.

Loh's energy is incredible and her characterizations are at once drop-on-the-floor hilarious and poignant. Come with a willingness to play and participate and you won't leave disappointed.

Loh's fans will likely adore it, though, and newcomers will find much to enjoy. A note, however: You had better love audience participation, because there is a lot of it.

There's something bizarrely reassuring about this seasonal treat, like finding an old Diane Arbus photo and being torn between fascination, revulsion, and familiarity. We all have a great and usually horrifying holiday memory to tell, don't we? Thank Terpsichore Sandra Tsing Loh continues to share hers so openly and with such splendidly entertaining dose of self-deprecation. To see her in 3-D is another thing entirely, her manic energy and wide-eyed, angst-ridden woebegone delivery yet another wonder to behold. I'm not sure what Miss Loh is "on," but I want some.
