As soon as the curtain went down on the 2019 Peoria Players and PAPAS Holiday Special, audiences were asking, “Are you doing this show next year?” With that said, by popular demand, both PAPAS and Players hoped to produce the show again in 2020, but plans were halted due the pandemic. Thankfully this year the show must go on.

The Holiday Special will feature current and former students from The Peoria Area Performing Arts Studio along with some of Peoria Players finest talents: Michelle Watson, Bree Caroll, Rusty Brost, Madison Boedecker, Adam Raso, Courtney Moore, Val Kelly and Ayana Thompson. The production is directed again this year by Bryan Blanks and Dedra Kaiser. The songs audiences loved from the 2019 production will return along with some new favorites. The show features selections from artists such as: Frank Sinatra, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Dean Martin, N’sync, Stevie Wonder and more. The show will also feature a number from Frozen 2 and Polar Express for the kids.

“The 2019 show was so special for Dedra and I. It was a chance to see our students and peers perform together. We hope you can join us for an evening that showcases how much talent Peoria has. All in one production!” – Bryan Blanks
