The toy stories are in. Ellen Travolta is sorting through them, picking the best for inclusion in “Christmas Unwrapped,” her new holiday show.
And now, tickets are officially on sale.
This year, Travolta and her sister, Margaret, will read stories about toys submitted by fans from all over the region. They started the storytelling project with last year’s show, “Christmas With a Twist.” This year, they sought stories about a toy received, a toy desired, or a toy given.
“This is such a special time of year,” Travolta said in a news release. “Performing with those I love; sharing treasured stories from the community; family, friends, community – isn’t that what Christmas is all about?”
In addition to the stories, the show will feature guest performances from Molly Allen, Travolta’s daughter, Abbey Crawford, Mark Cotter, Laura Sable, Patrick Treadway and Lola Fridley, Travolta’s granddaughter.
The show opens Nov. 23 at the Coeur d’Alene Resort, and will run through Dec. 16. Tickets are $27.50 and are available at cdachristmas.com.
