Santa and His Crew Ring in the Season at the 16th Annual L.U.N.C.H. Holiday Show

“Diana Jones: Reindeer of the Lost Arc, The Christmas Skull, and the Search For the Holy Gruel”

In this year’s presentation of the 2012 L.U.N.C.H Holiday Show, three of Santa’s magic artifacts have been stolen and hidden in remote locations around the world.  Santa enlists the help of famed adventurer Diana Jones (and her Diana clones) to retrieve the missing items and save Christmas.   Since its inception in 1995, This community favorite family entertainment event features a light-hearted take on pop culture, with parodies of popular songs along with thoughtful original Christmas music.

Produced by  Local United Network to Combat Hunger and featuring  professional artists  including:  Connecticut State Troubadour and 2012 Grammy Winner  Bill  Pere; 2007 Immie-Award Winner Kay Pere;  and recording artist Larry Batter; supporting a cast of 30 kids from several area schools from Westerly to East Lyme.

The show will take place on Saturday December 1,  at 7pm, with  live pre-show music starting at 6:15. (Snow date is December 2) at the Stonington Community Center.

The show will benefit local Social Service Agencies in providing holiday food baskets and basic services to families in need.  Agencies which  benefit from the LUNCH Holiday events include:  The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, The New London Community Meal Center,  The Groton Food Locker,  MASH, WARM,  Covenant House,  and many more.  Typical of many local agencies,  the economy has resulted in fewer donations, while the need for assistance has risen.

General Admission Tickets in advance are  $10 (adults), $8 (under age 12) or on of the day of the show. If you  cannot attend but  would like to  help    with this community outreach, you  can sponsor seats  at  $10  each, and the tickets will be given to families who  otherwise might not  be able to  attend.  Tickets are available online at www.lunchensemble.com or by phone at 860-572-9285.  There are usually very few tickets left by the day of the show, and seating is strictly limited, so advance purchase is recommended.
