Sadly, while the biggest preshow extravaganza ever for Peaches, a lackluster performance was disconnected and uneven. Uncharacteristically, I only smiled like twice...

Description

Joy to the world! There’s no need to sit on a strange man’s lap in a mall to get what you want for Christmas this year (unless you want to be groped by a stranger, which is always high on our list). Peaches Christ already knows exactly what you want: a not-at-all silent night of goth holiday glory at San Francisco’s historic Castro Theatre! With that in mind she has concocted a ghoul-tide extravaganza like none other: the Peaches Christ Productions world premiere of The Nightmare We Call Christmas, an all-new Antichristmas Pageant featuring a screening of the only holiday movie with skintight leather bodysuits, a fervent appreciation for hair styling and topiary maintenance, and Winona Ryder in a blonde wig: Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands

But that’s not all! Edward Scissorhands is just one of many unforgettable characters Tim Burton has given us, and the spectacular pre-show will pay tribute to a wide range of Burtonian weirdos, featuring guest appearances from the likes of Beetlejuice, Pee-Wee Herman, The Queen Of Hearts, Mrs. Lovett, a chorus of oompah-loompahs, and so much more.  Drink away your holiday misery with cocktails in our North Pole-Dancer Lounge in the Castro Mezzanine.

And make sure to dress up in your gloomiest holiday look for the Holiday Macabre Costume Contest.
