Armstrong’s Asparagus Community Theatre is celebrating the season with its new winter production, Christmas in King Armstrong’s Court.

The production is described as a variety show featuring local citizens.

With a cast of all ages, the show is a raucous comedy starring such “local celebrities” as Queen Rosedale, King Armstrong, the Evil Queens of Enderby, the Duke and Duchess of Falkland, and even Lord Lumby (although, honestly, producers say they don’t know who invited him!)

The medieval evening of music, dance, singing, magic, comedy, and much more, starring both new and well-known performers, runs  Dec. 2-3 and Dec. 9-10 at 7:30 p.m., with an afternoon matinee at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 10.

All shows are at the Centennial Theatre on Pleasant Valley Road in Armstrong.

Tickets are available at The Guy Next Door and are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and students, and $10 for children 10 and under.

A silent auction for a variety of “medieval” antiques, collectables, and gift certificates will also be featured with funds raised going towards future productions.
