What happens when over fifty Las Vegas artists, musicians, and actors come together for a special one-night-only performance? Oh, only the best Christmas Eve-Eve Ever!
On Friday, December 23rd, Same Sex Mary (SSM) is showcasing their latest full-length production, “A Very Merry Same Sex Mary Christmas Spectacular,” at The Bunkhouse Saloon in Downtown Las Vegas. This holiday-themed dark comedy will be thought provoking, engaging, and most importantly, entertaining. By mixing elements of a live rock-n-roll performance together with theatrical interludes, the audience is given the immersive opportunity to share in an unparalleled festive experience.
Organizing SSM’s Technical and Creative Team is Cirque du Soleil veteran Aaron Guidry. He has performed over 6,000 shows across the country, internationally, and most recently on Broadway.
Award-winning playwright Bryan Todd (Valley Theatre Awards 2016 - Best Director, Best Play "The Nether") and Artistic Director Michael Duffy (Cirque du Soleil) will be guiding the narrative of this one-of-a-kind Las Vegas Christmas story. The cast features over 50 local artists, musicians, actors, and performers. By bringing together a cross section of talent from all throughout the valley, SSM intends to raise the expectation for quality-produced theater.
SSM’s most recent large-scale show was produced at Fremont Country Club and drew over 300 guests. It garnered critical acclaim and was highly revered by attendees. Las Vegas Weekly called it "a feast for the senses" and Desert Companion Magazine wrote, “It is a rare and meaningful occurrence when the show of the year comes from a local act, but Boulder City psyche-rockers Same Sex Mary achieved just that with an ambitious spectacle.”
The Bunkhouse is the perfect venue to feature this modern Christmas tale. Not only does this location provide a quintessential gathering for the Downtown Vegas Arts Scene, but also the space itself, including the outdoor courtyard, offers an atmosphere integrated seamlessly into the story. Additionally, SSM is partnering with local food bank Three Square who will be on-location the night of the show accepting charitable donations. SSM is committed to using the performance as a vehicle to heighten awareness for those in need during this special time of year.
