Asheville Community Theatre (ACT) kicks off another season of their family-friendly series, Saturdays at ACT, on Saturday, November 16, 2013. A performance of Christmas with Santa produced by Bright Star Touring Theatre will begin at 10:00 am, with activities in the ACT lobby prior to and after the show.  Tickets are $5.00 and are available for purchase at the door, over the phone, or online at 

The spirit of the holidays is celebrated in Christmas with Santa. This lighthearted and fun comedy features two hilarious elves who have misplaced most of Santa’s presents. When Santa arrives he teaches the well-meaning elves that the real gift of the season are the people and friends we celebrate it with. Christmas with Santa is produced by Bright Star Touring Theatre, a professional touring theatre company based in Asheville, NC.

In addition to the play, the Saturdays at ACT event will feature complimentary face-painting and balloon animals before and after the show as well as a snowflake ornament decorating station.  Ice cream scooped by The Hop will be available for purchase. Pre-show activities will begin at 9:30 am.

“The Saturdays at ACT program was developed to introduce families and young audiences to the theatre,” said Chanda Calentine, Program Director at ACT.  “This is a fun and creative way for families to spend quality time together.”
