---- — If you or your family is having a difficult time getting into the Christmas spirit, Beef & Boards has just the solution for you – the production of “A Beef & Boards Christmas.”

As Beef & Boards wraps up its 40th anniversary season, a new quartet entertains with festive arrangements in the show on stage now through Dec. 23.

Four members of the highly-acclaimed cast of Les Misérables return to the Beef & Boards stage for the holidays. Kelly Teal Goyette, who made her Beef & Boards debut in Les Misérables, is the featured vocalist in A Beef & Boards Christmas. Her former cast mates Bobbi Bates, Peter Scharbrough, and Dominic Sheahan-Stahl are joined by newcomer and Indianapolis native Emily Rogge to create the show’s talented quartet.

The sounds of the seasons from these performers are enhanced by the dancers and costumes to bring the excitement and joy of the season to warm the hearts of those in attendance. Not to be outdone, the Beef & Board Orchestra is another highlight of the spectacular evening on the stage.

“A Beef & Boards Christmas” has something for the entire family. From “Jingle Bells” to “Feliz Navidad” to the antics of the Grinch to the touching performance of “Silent Night,” this holiday production has it all.

And no holiday celebrations would be complete without a visit from the North Pole as Santa and his friends are on hand to complete the celebration for the whole family.

There are 32 performances of A Beef & Boards Christmas scheduled in the intimate setting of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s holiday dinner buffet offering carved turkey and all the trimmings, a fruit and salad bar, unlimited coffee and tea. Student group pricing is available for select performances; ask for details. Parking is free.
