Seasonal celebration presents new arrangements


Hendricks County Flyer

---- — Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre’s annual production, “A Beef & Boards Christmas,” will have a fresh feel this season as an all-new quartet presents close to a dozen new arrangements in a celebration of the season, on stage Nov. 29 through Dec. 23.

Four members of the cast of “Les Misérables” return to perform this holiday season. Kelly Teal Goyette, who made her Beef & Boards debut in “Les Misérables,” is the lead singer in “A Beef & Boards Christmas.” Goyette’s former castmates Dominic Sheahan-Stahl, Peter Scharbrough, and Bobbi Bates are joined by newcomer Emily Rogge to create the show’s featured quartet. Together they blend the sounds of the season while surrounded by costumed dancers.

But holidays are all about traditions. And while new ones will be made this year, some remain as the familiar faces of Deb Wims and Kenny Shepard return to the stage to co-host “A Beef & Boards Christmas.” Even Santa is on hand to make it a holiday celebration for the entire family.

There are 32 performances of “A Beef & Boards Christmas” scheduled at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Road. Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s holiday dinner buffet offering carved turkey and all the trimmings, a fruit and salad bar, and unlimited coffee and tea. Student pricing is available for select performances. Parking is free.
