Holiday Cabaret Delights at the Strauss Youth Academy for the Arts

Dec 3, 2019

The Strauss Youth Academy for the Arts (SYAA) presents Hollywood Holiday 2 : Laugh-In Editon.

The SYAA stage is transformed into a big Hollywood soundstage ready to celebrate the holidays. This year's production features classic hits like "Silver Bells" and "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas," and  sketches with lots of jokes. 

The production's cast and crew are completely made up of SYAA's students, ranging from the ages of eight to eighteen. The students have been preparing for the show over the past few months and are ready to share their work with the audience. 

In SYAA's seventh annual holiday caberet, the group is traveling back in time to the late 60's and the days of Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In. The production will be modeled after the old television special of the same name and even features the show's famous joke wall. 

Walter May-Allen, director of SYAA, wants to assure guests that "this" Laugh-In is family friendly and includes songs that people of all ages can enjoy. He says,"There's defintely something for everybody, whether your five or ninety-five, and young or old at heart." 

Performances of Hollywood Holiday 2 : Laugh-in will be this weekend and the next with evening and matinee shows. Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for students. The performance schedule is as follows:
