Seattle comedians Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt (aka Dos Fallopia) return to ACT Theatre with their wonky, gender-bending holiday sketch hoo-hah, better known as Ham for the Holidays: Jurassic Pork. Directed by David Hunter Koch, the long-running cult series has found a hammy holiday home at ACT’s Falls Theatre, in collaboration with ACTLab. Naughty, nutty, and nervy – nothing is sacred in this mishmash of social satire, musical parody, and campy characters. Platt and Koch take you on a devilishly whacky holiday romp!
- Rockers Heartwood Mac host a Seattle music festival;
- The Dweeb Girls tell ghost stories at Camp Stillasqueemish;
- Are You Smarter Than A Queen game show pits audience members against famous queens;
- The tiny Sequim Gay Men’s Chorus sing with glee;
- Country duo The Spudds present their sci-fi tribute, Spudd Trek.
Ham features performances by Platt, Koch, Michael Oaks, Joel Domenico and musical director Bruce Hall. The creative team includes Robert J. Aguilar (Lighting), Robin Macartney (Set/Props), Kim Dancy (Costumes), Akemi Hart (Wigs), Debra J. Mullins (Keynote) and Koch (Sound/Video).
