As The Holidays quickly approach, The malls are full of last minute shoppers looking for that unique gift. A good bet are the kiosks and booths which line the malls…with interesting, unusual choices and equally interesting people manning them!.

Westchester Broadway Theatre, not to be outdone, has booths in 4 nearby malls  with very loyal  and very dramatic employees there at their posts right up to Christmas Eve!  Visit Danbury Fair, Poughkeepsie Galleria, Jefferson Valley Mall and The Palisades Center.

Gift certificates for two are available to the WBT. This is One-Stop Shopping! How Many Do You Need? They’re good for one year and the recipients choose the show.

Our Upcoming Season Includes Tony Award winning shows such as: Camelot, West Side Story, Showboat & much more!  Ask the employees at the booth…perhaps they’ll sing you a preview!
