“11 Best New Year’s Eve parties and events in Los Angeles!” exclaims the Daily News. A scrumptious and sumptuous complimentary buffet supper starts off the evening, then it’s “on with the show!” as internationally acclaimed Actors’ Repertory Theatre brings you a highly entertaining, family-friendly Rudie-DeCarlo musical revue, with prizes, sing-a-long songs, dancing in the aisles, humor and other delights culled from nearly 6 decades of audience favorite Santa Monica Playhouse productions. From finger-snapping 40s jazz to foot-stompin’ country rock, Jewish patter songs to romantic ballads, this show has it all!
Add champagne, non-alcoholic sparkling apple juice, hats, tiaras, noisemakers, leis, streamers and special surprises and you have a not-to-be-missed New Year’s Eve celebration. “A company that knows what its audience expects from an evening of theatre!” hails L.A. TIMES.
The 9:30 show features a midnight meet ’n’ greet and dancing with the cast. The early-bird 6:00 pm celebration offers everything that the later show does and is a great way to celebrate New Year’s Eve with the entire family, letting the kids have a real New Year’s Eve treat, and get home at a reasonable hour, or kick off an evening of after-theatre dining and celebrating.
Directed by Arthur R. Tompkin, this year’s annual New Year’s Eve event features Andrea Adnoff, Jacob Cooper, Chris DeCarlo, Tiffany Haile, Evelyn Rudie, Elena Rust, Berkeley Sanjay and Raeva Vasisht, with songs by Rudie, Matthew Wrather and Emery Bernauer. Playhouse New Year’s Eve festivities are among the most popular in town, and shows sell out fast, so book early to avoid disappointment.
