“The Nitemare B4 Xmas” performed live by The Saloon Ensemble and special guests at The Alberta Rose Theatre!
“ALL TOGETHER, THAT AND THIS, WITH ALL OUR TRICKS, WE’RE MAKING CHRISTMAS TIME!”
We’re back with The Saloon Ensemble’s 10th epic production of “The Nitemare B4 Xmas!!!!”
Portland’s legendary performance troupe The Saloon Ensemble will once again bring to the stage a live performance of the brilliant Danny Elfman score complete with interactive SING-A-LONGS, a COSTUME CONTEST, everyone’s favorite SCREAMING CONTEST and many other ‘horrible’ surprises!
Celebrate the Halloween season with our annual production that’s been packing houses and delivering joyous fun for all spirits, young and old.
This year we’re doing 3 shows. Friday night we’re happy to have Lucky Beaucoup play a funky opening set and after, we’re hosting a “Party with the Cast and Crew” afterparty! Saturday and Sunday are matinees!
“Saloon’s Nitemare is many kinds of show–a kid’s show, a variety show, a retelling of a seasonal myth, a big-band dance show, an enthusiastic singspiel–and there’s something timeless about that sort of despecialization; the production’s smattering of amateurish elements only added to that feeling. But that’s not to say that any of it was poorly performed–the show was grand, simply grand, and the band kicked ass…I hope this show runs for a century.”
