Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s annual send-up of Christmas classics is back onstage after taking a year off due to COVID. 

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!) transforms a production of A Christmas Carol into an irreverent and fast-paced skewering of other holiday favorites ranging from It’s a Wonderful Life to How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Three actors (and a Drunk Santa, played by Miranda McGee) spend 90-plus minutes of “high octane jollity and frivolity” making merry this season in an adult-friendly romp through both kitschy and nostalgic Christmas favorites.

It’s a fun and funny favorite local tradition — Cincy Shakes calls it the "most praised and popular production" in the company's history — and it's onstage longer than ever this year: Nov. 19-Dec. 26.

The show isn't recommended for those who still believe in Santa Claus. But it is recommended that you don your best holiday apparel to performances, including ugly Christmas sweaters.

All guests must show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test and wear a mask.

Tickets start at $14 for the Upper Gallery, and unsold rush tickets are available for $12 starting one hour before showtime.

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is located at 1195 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine. Get tickets and more info at cincyshakes.com
