GRCC Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership
Galveston College Theatre to present ‘The No-Hole Holiday’ Nov. 15-17
News Release
Thursday, November 08, 2018

GALVESTON, Texas – This holiday season, the Galveston College Theatre department will present the musical-comedy, “The No Hole Holiday,” with book and lyrics by Stan Gill and music by Cindy Bright and Stan Gill.

The family-friendly production centers on an upwardly mobile elf, frustrated Halloween goblins, industrious hole-making gnomes, schmoozy politicians and Santa, who populate this charming and zany modern fairy tale.

In this original story by popular kids-fairy-tale-show author Gill, it is still a month before the holidays and preparations are gearing up. 

“The Holiday World”, Santa says, “is a strange and unusual place.” Axel the Elf has been promoted to Santa’s personal staff; however, instead of something glamorous like tinsel or music, he is put in charge of buying holes.

Santa sends Axel to see Mr. Pistachio, the Commissioner of Stuff, to make the deal, but sends him with a warning. There are two goblins called the Grump Sisters, who are jealous that their holiday, Halloween, lasts only a day, while Santa’s festivities are celebrated for a month.

Mr. Pistachio takes Axel to meet Rowley and Jinx, the two gnomes who run the Hole Factory, so he may see how important his new job is. Axel begins to get the idea and his attitude changes about the importance of his new job, just in time for the Grumps to attempt to sabotage the Hole Factory and ruin everyone’s holiday.

Will the Grump Sisters succeed or will Santa, Axel, Rowley, Jinx and Mr. Pistachio save the holidays?

Company members include Eva Arita, Alyssa Gudz, Jade Killebrew, Daniel Maxey, Andrea Parson, Kristopher Prodoehl, Eric Scales, Destiny Shute Montemayor, Wrath Sorrell and Fallon Smith.

Galveston College Program Coordinator for the Performing Arts Liz Lacy is directing.

Show dates and times are Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain and admission is free. However, the Galveston College Theatre department will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items for the Galveston County Food Bank.

Performances are located in the Abe and Annie Seibel Wing on the Galveston College campus, 4015 Ave. Q, Galveston.
