TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: S.F.’s 42nd Street Moon Presents Its Holiday Production of “The Mistletones”

Dec 06, 2019
San Francisco’s 42nd Street Moon has announced a special holiday production with its Bay Area premiere of the hilarious comedy singing group, “The Mistletones.” This quartet puts its own holiday twist on popular songs from the ‘50s to today and has been playing to sellout crowds throughout Southern California for the past decade.

The talented quartet known as “The Mistletones” will be performing December 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17 at San Francisco’s Gateway Theatre (215 Jackson Street) with bells on as they hit the stage for a holiday music and comedy revue designed to leave you feeling merry and bright. Soprano Rebecca Thomas, alto Jillian Bader, tenor Daniel Thomas and bass Casey Marshall bring their comedy, handbells and four-part harmonies to this seasonal extravaganza, along with a Christmas stocking full of clever parody songs, including “We Will Flock You,” “Can’t Wrap This,” “Ugly Sweater,” “Toy Sack” and many more.

“The world of musical theater and popular music have long been fertile ground for parody,” says director/producer Casey Marshall, “and The Mistletones are unique. Their reinterpretations of classic popular songs are consistently clever and varied in style, while retaining the tunefulness and foot-tapping fun of the originals; and the updates to the lyrics give you a holiday experience you’ve never had before. The Mistletones appeal to fans of a cappella, rock and roll, jazz, and musical theatre in equal measure, and our cast and creative team are simply off the charts!”

“The Mistletones is full of fun, quirky, message-free holiday entertainment," continued Mr. Marshall,” with wall-to-wall music designed to bring a smile to your face. When you combine the outlandish comedy with great arrangements, great voices and a casual feel that gives you a different show every night - The Mistletones is a great holiday experience for all."

“The Mistletones runs approximately 90 minutes, including one intermission. Tickets range from $20-$30 and can be purchased through the Box Office at (415) 255-8207 or online at www.42ndstmoon.org.
