So, let’s say that —somewhere over the rainbow—there is a Starman, who journeys back in time to various periods of time—in America—to check out the real meaning of Christmas.

There is the plot of the Stutler/Funking 203rd production for the holidays, at the Westchester Broadway Theatre, where you can eat delicious food and see a wonderful show and park free.

“It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” now that Thanksgiving is over, in Elmsford, New York. “We wish for “Snow” and we know it soon will be coming. “Father Christmas” is coming soon…it’s “Turkey Lurkey Time,” you see, and the “Man With a Bag” soon will be coming from “Toyland” for a “Holly, Jolly Christmas.” “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” in Elmsford, New York. So we can “Deck The Halls” and wait for “The First Noel” on this “Oh Holy Night,” and hope for a “White Christmas” and we can all take a “Sleigh Bride.” Understand?

As usual, the cast here is a “Toyland” of talent. Take the Starman—Zack Trimmer. Kudos to Haylie Shea Cristiano and Bonnie Fraser—who standout in this cast. And let’s not forget Joseph Cllinane and Gary Lynch. And the 8-year-old Molly Lyons. The rest of the cast is superb!

There is a special director/choreographer named Richard Stafford. I would list his credits here, but I don’t have enough space! He, of Broadway fame, is a special credit to the WBT!

So—Christmas is a-coming, and “Here Comes Santa Claus” to the Westchester Broadway Theatre. “Let There Be Peace On Earth” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by sitting in this magnificent theatre to see “A Christmas Voyager!”
