A Louisiana Hayride Christmas!
Get in the Christmas spirit with the incredibly talented cast of the Louisiana Hayride Show. After nine (9) years of successful shows across Western Canada, the cast and crew of the Louisiana Hayride Show are bringing their very special Christmas production to Moose Jaw. The show will take the stage at the Mae Wilson Theatre on Friday, December 7th at 7:30pm.
You’ll think you’re at their concert when you see Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Crystal Gayle, Lefty Frizzell and Shania Twain step on stage to perform for you! The talented singers and musicians of the Louisiana Hayride Show recreate these iconic artists and take you on a musical journey with their legendary hits along with their favorite Christmas tunes, such as Blue Christmas, Pretty Paper and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
In addition to enjoying your favorite ‘characters’ from the Louisiana Hayride Show and a few of the show’s most popular songs like Ring of Fire, Dang Me, If You’ve Got the Money, Tiger By the Tail and Pretty Woman, in this special Christmas edition you’ll be treated to the incredible vocals of the cast as they sing as themselves.
Andrea Anderson will bring tears to your eyes with her incredible versions of Oh Holy Night and How Great Thou Art and William Brookfield and Gil Risling will do a wonderful rendition of Away In A Manger and Do You Hear What I Hear. And Gil’s vocals and William’s instrumentation on Hark the Herald Angels will leave you breathless. Woven throughout the songs are fascinating bits of information, delightfully presented by your host and creator of the show, Lori Risling. This show will take you on a magical Christmas journey, a delight from start to finish.
There’s lots of fun in the show as well with Vic de Sousa bringing you his portrayal of Elvis and Derek Pulliam as Lefty Frizzell is always a crowd pleaser. “This show is different from our last Christmas show because we are featuring our new characters, Elvis, Crystal Gayle, Shania Twain and Lefty Frizzell,” said Lori Risling, creator of the show. “Our audience’s reaction to the show is always incredible. If they’ve seen the show before, we get comments like ‘Best Show Yet’ or ‘I didn’t think you could get any better but you did’. If they haven’t seen the show before the comments are, ‘Wow, we had no idea how good the show would be.’ Coming to this show people can expect wonderful Christmas music with a few regular Hayride songs added. If they like Christmas music they will love this show. There are limited tickets left.”
