* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for Home for the Holidays was Saturday December 16, 2006 / 7:00pm.
The parking is very disorganized at MTW. Be sure to allow time going in and getting out. On the Atherton side, they are usually line up into the street. It appears there is only one line, but there is normally two. There is just no sign or person to let you know . You may see someone a block away swing their arms, if anything.'S Wonderful info • Apr 21 2014 star this tip starred
Reviews & Ratings
Richard Carpenter is best-known as one half of the Carpenters, one of the best-selling musical groups of the 1970s. Both Richard and his sister Karen are alumni of California State University, Long Beach and the Carpenter Performing Arts Center is named in their honor.
Home for the Holidays is Musical Theatre West’s annual concert of music of the yuletide season and features live singers and dancers with an onstage orchestra and special guests. This year’s performance will continue the tradition that Musical Theatre West has established by bringing together many of their stars from past productions in an all-new celebration of the Holiday Season. In addition to Richard and Mindi Carpenter the cast will include Teri Bibb (She Loves Me_), Jill Townsend (_I Love A Piano and Thoroughly Modern Millie_), Robert Townsend (Thoroughly Modern Millie_), Tami Tappan Damiano (Never Gonna Dance, Guys and Dolls, and Crazy for You_), Kevin Earley (_Anything Goes, I Love A Piano and Guys and Dolls_) and Norman Large (_La Cage aux Folles).
Once again Lee Martino will serve as director/choreographer for Home for the Holidays. Ms Martino is another MTW favorite, having recently choreographed their productions of Never Gonna Dance, Guys and Dolls (for which she was nominated for a Los Angeles Ovation Award), La Cage aux Folles, and Mame. The production will feature a live onstage orchestra and a chorus of dancers and singers.
