        Paisley Sisters Christmas Special, The

Paisley Sisters Christmas Special, The

Start with White Christmas, mix in a mid-'60s Judy Garland television Christmas special, add a dash of Silkwood, and you have The Paisley Sisters' Christmas Special! It's 1964, and America's Songbirds, The Paisley Sisters, are airing a brand-new color-television holiday extravaganza with hopes of landing themselves back in the Top 40. The result is a hilarious send-up of early television holiday specials full of backstage drama, questionable corporate sponsors, secret telephone calls, assumed identities, and general mayhem. This hip alternative to standard holiday fare has been charming sell-out crowds across the USA and Canada, and your theater can be next! Appeared in the 2006 New York Musical Theatre Festival.

Music by Bret Silverman, Lyrics by Joel Benjamin, James Ansart and Bret Silverman; Book by Joel Benjamin, James Ansart, Bret Silverman and Steve Silverman
