Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)
All online ticketing has been turned off and only a few post-Christmas tables remain for the run - call the box office now at 541.488.2902 for tickets.
November 20th - December 31st
Instead of performing Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, a small company of actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told – including truncated versions of Christmas stories like Frosty the Snowman, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and A Gift of the Magi. This madcap holiday tour-de-force also includes stories about strange Christmas traditions from around the world, and topical pop-culture references. Don’t miss this comic romp through the holiday season!
Please Note: The existence of an iconic Christmas figure is debated in this show. Parents, if you have questions related to this, call our box office at 541.488.2902. There is some comic violence and very mild language. Were it a movie, it would be rated PG.
Director Rick Robinson has once again paired a brilliant script and paired it with an equally brilliant cast
Forget Charles Dickens' heart tugging classic, "A Christmas Carol." Instead, welcome "Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some)," a wild and laughingly whacky romp that's lighting up the holidays at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre in Ashland.
The tour of holiday shows is heartfelt and hilarious, from the Grinch to Frosty, "The Gift of the Magi" to Rudolph, errrrr, due to copyright infringement issues, make that Gustav, the Green-nosed Rein-Goat.
Even if you’re really busy this holiday season, you should still take two hours to experience the holidays from start to finish at Oregon Cabaret Theatre’s “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some).” The show has everyone’s favorite holiday tales, abbreviated for sure, mixed up and mashed up. You’ll rocket through scenes and songs from the Nutcracker, Charlie Brown, Dickens, Frosty the Snowman and more in hilarious song and dance
I've been attending the performances since the first play, "Dames at Sea" back in the 1980s. Decades have passed, and the vast majority of plays have been so outstanding that each has a special place in my memory and heart. Thank you, all you wonderful actors, musicians, directors, lighting crew, chefs, waitresses, volunteers and all other Cabaret employees who have created such a wealth of wonderful experiences that last a life-time. You are special and always will be. What a legacy! Let the fun and laughter continue....the world needs more of it!

We sat in the back, and loved every minute of it, great seats.. Order when you sit for Dessert and drinks at Intermission. Talent was amazing, staff wonderful, food scrumptious, plus we could go outside for a few minutes at intermission and get back in with no hassle. Highly recommend.
