TheatreNova presents ‘The Elves and the Schumackers’ 11/30-12/30

Show Announcement November 16, 2018

ANN ARBOR, MI  – Theatre NOVA here presents the world premiere of The Elves and the Schumachers by Carla Milarch and R. MacKenzie Lewis. The theatre company’s holiday tradition continues with another fun-filled night from the team that brought us “The Year Without a Panto Claus” and “Sugar Plum Panto.”

This year Hanukkah gets in on the act, when two toy-making elves on the lam wind up in a dreidel store, and hilarity ensues in this multi-cultural holiday celebration featuring musical comedy, slapstick, vaudeville, and fun.

“The Elves and the Schumachers” features Elizabeth Jaffe, Dan Morrison, William Powers, and Sarah B. Stevens and is directed by Carla Milarch. The production and design team includes R. Mackenzie Lewis (music director/composer), Forrest Hejkal (scenic design), Haley Cook (costume design), Jeff Alder (lighting design), Becky Fox (props), and Alona Shewach (stage manager).

“The Elves and the Schumachers” will run November 30 through December 30, 2018, at Theatre NOVA (410 W. Huron, Ann Arbor), a downtown performance space. Showtimes are 7:30 pm on Fridays, 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm on Saturdays, and 2:00 pm on Sundays. Theatre NOVA features free parking for patrons, as well as quick access to the city’s restaurants, bars, bakeries, and coffee shops.

Tickets are $22 and $10 for kids (16 years and under). Theatre NOVA continues to making theatre accessible by offering pay-what-you-can tickets for those who need them. For tickets, visit TheatreNOVA.org, call 734-635-8450 (Tuesdays through Fridays from noon until 3:00 p.m.), or buy them in person at the box office starting one hour before each performance.
