YLAMT

The holidays are a time of heart‐warming stories that affirm the goodness of humankind and spread the message of love, but seriously, someone has to tell the truth! Creative Works of Lancaster is proud to present Yule Laugh Again More Too, a theatrical production that will not spread any message, affirm any goodness, nor warm any hearts. But it will, as promised in the title, make audiences laugh.

Audiences love ‘Yule Laugh Again More Too!”
Here are the top 17 life-changing reasons you need to see it!

  1. You know all the itchy redness? You’ll learn how to get rid of that.
  2. It may get you transferred onto the naughty list, and let’s face it, that’s where the action is.
  3. You’ll come out of the theater with an intimate knowledge of quantum mechanics.
  4. The world you currently see as cruel and joyless will suddenly appear just as cruel as before, but a funny kind of cruelty.
  5. You’ll discover the secret ingredient in Grandma’s Christmas cookies, and no, it’s not love.
  6. There is NO reason number 6.
  7. Time waits for no man. Admittedly, that’s not really a life changer, but just thought you should be aware.
  8. While we’re on the subject, time waits for no woman either.
  9. Santa will no longer be able to see you when you’re sleeping, and admit it, that was getting creepy.
  10. You know those Christmas movies you’re forced to take in each year? You’ll cover half of those in less than ten minutes.
  11. You’ll finally find out the location of all the best juicers in the county.
  12. Whichever stage of grieving you are in, this show will instantly move you to the next one. And if you already made it to acceptance, you’ll probably end up back at the start with denial again.
  13. You’ll have the opportunity to uncap the hidden potential within you. Or uncap and drink a beer. One of the two.
  14. For an entire hour you will find a safe haven in a totally “12 Days of Christmas” free zone.
  15. Instead of discovering the true meaning of Christmas, you’ll discover the completely irrelevant tangential information that may or may not have anything to do with the actual holiday.
  16. The knot tying workshop will prepare you for the eventuality that you ever have to strap a branch onto your dog’s head and use him as a reindeer.
  17. Schadenfreude. Nothing more need be said.
There’s still time to see this hilarious show, don’t miss it!

Theater does more than build community. Theater is community. Theater is a sharing of energy, melding of hearts, and exchange of ideas. And this sharing isn’t just between actors and audience, but within the audience too. More than any other art form, theater requires togetherness, and reinforces that same togetherness.

But this amazing art form is constantly in danger of becoming stagnant. Someone has to infuse new into theater. New works, new takes on old works, new audiences. What keeps theater alive and relevant? This very newness.

That’s where Creative Works of Lancaster takes a lead role. We dare to do what has never been done in this community. We bring the works that otherwise would never see a stage. We work at stages that would otherwise never see work. And we bring more new people into the togetherness, into the community, into the circle of sharing that is the soul of this art.

Each summer, we produce a play, free to audiences, in a city park. Children who have never had access to theater can see it come together live. This summer, in Crystal Park, over 500 people witnessed theater in a venue that has never seen a performance like it before.

We produce new works by local writers. The words, the ideas, the spirit of this community is produced on stage, and from here can move outward to influence the world.

Yes, perhaps we sound lofty when we describe what we do, but we believe in it. We relish the challenge and the results.

Each dollar you give is the very plasma that helps to keep theater, the most ancient interactive form of art, alive, vibrant, and empowering for our city, our county, our community.
