On Thin Ice: A Very Phoenix Xmas 3 is this year’s installment of the Phoenix Theatre’s annual alternative holiday tradition that features sketches by 10 playwrights. The pieces were selected from more than four dozen submissions that were received after a call for humorous sketches sending up the winter holidays went out. The sketches range from mysterious (Another Turn of the Scrooge by Carl L. Williams) to whimsical (Balls by George Cameron Grant) to thought-provoking (Inappropriate Letters to Santa Claus by Jonathan Graham) and beyond. In addition to the sketches, solos, small vocal ensembles and dancing will round out the evening.
Shows are Nov. 20-Dec. 20, Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Fridays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. There will be one Sunday performance Nov. 30 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25, $15 for those 24 and under. All Thursdays are CheapSeats nights: All tickets are just $15. To purchase tickets, call the theater, 749 N. Park Ave., at 317-635-PLAY or go to www.phoenixtheatre.org.
