Quicksilver Holiday Musical Event

Saturday, December 11, 2004, 2pm

Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto

The GrooveLily Holiday Show, presented by TheatreWorks

A HIP HOLIDAY MUSICAL – Northern California Premiere
Book, music and lyrics by
Brendan Milburn / Rachel Sheinkin / Valerie Vigoda

A Rewired Version of The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen

Can a light bulb that cures the blues brighten up a lonely guy's New Year's Eve? This festive fairy tale features the acclaimed band GROOVELILY. Their sweet, witty concert-play is a clever mix of musical comedy, pop-rock tunes, and old-fashioned uplift, illuminated by an incandescent salesgirl whose holiday spirit just can't be matched.

"Striking 12 strikes gold...An ideal holiday entertainment." - Los Angeles Times

86 tickets are on hold for us, which was all of the remaining seats (out of 425) on Sept. 3. A few more might become available as subscribers swap seats for other dates.

We get a group discount price of $24 for adults and $20 for students. This is the standard student price, but it is a big reduction from the regular $44 adult price. There is no service charge.

Since this is a holiday event, expedition members and their families are invited. Due to the limited number of tickets, though, please limit your ticket request to family members.

Secure your tickets as follows:

  • email with your adult and student ticket counts, and use a Subject line of “TB Striking 12 tickets”
  • write a check for all your tickets payable to Brian, and mail it to:

Brian Berg
14500 Big Basin Way, Suite F
Saratoga, CA 95070

Ticket requests will be queued up based on the order in which emails are received. This will determine seat location. There will probably be about enough tickets for all those who are interested, but receipt of your check will insure your spot in the queue. Brian will distribute tickets at the front door – this will allow for inevitable last minute changes.

The plan is to coordinate this event with a service activity, such as a “gift wrapping party” for presents to be given to needy kids. It might be fun to do this before the play, and then go to dinner after the play. We might help the Family Giving Tree, but forward any ideas for the service activity and for a restaurant to Brian.

You and your family are invited to participate in any or all of these three activities, depending on your schedule. Further details will be forthcoming.

The Lucie Stern Theatre is on Middlefield Road near Embarcadero Rd., and near “Christmas Tree Lane.” The latter is a 2-block stretch of Fulton St. south of Embarcadero Rd. that has been decorated by the City of Palo Alto for the Holidays since 1940.
