Musical
New Milford, CT: TheatreWorks: Wreck The Halls. Music & Lyrics by Bradford Blake and directed by Bradford Blake.

But audiences should be warned - they'll never look at Kris Kringle the same way again. Note: Due to adult situations and language, it is not recommended for the younger elves. 2 pm. 860-350-6863  https://theatreworks.us/shows/display_show.php?show_id=wreckthehalls→
