STRIKING 12 Brings Laughs and Real-Life Holiday Spirit to BlackRock
Musical theater is back on stage at Germantown’s BlackRock Center for the Arts as Free Range Humans, a Maryland-based professional theater company and a member of BlackRock’s Creative Consortium, presents STRIKING 12, a witty, intelligent holiday musical in a seven-performance run from December 13 through December 22.
A modern musical fairy tale that is sure to delight both lovers and haters of the holidays alike, STRIKING 12 is the story of a grumpy, overworked New Yorker who resolves to spend New Year’s Eve alone in his apartment when an unexpected visitor brings some much-needed cheer. The evening springs to life through actor/musicians playing an eclectic score that combines pop, rock, jazz, showtunes, and more. The story is inspired, in part, by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic, “The Little Match Girl.”
“We picked this show for its humor and heart,” said Elizabeth Lucas, Free Range Humans’ Producing Artistic Director. “It’s by a living writer who captures the quirks and challenges of our modern era with wit, insight and brilliant music.”
