SALT LAKE CITY

STAR WARD CHRISTMAS

The Off Broadway Theatre, 272 S. Main St., Salt Lake City

The Off Broadway Theatre is constantly criticized for not having enough intergalactic Christmas shows with a Mormon-based theme. Unfortunately, “Santa meets the Mormon Martian Missionaries” just didn’t sell. But this year they silence all of their critics with their holiday show, “Star Ward Christmas.” This amazing musical parody takes characters from last year’s very successful “Star Ward” and mixes them with current sci-fi characters so that they can save Christmas from the dork side. Happy Holidays and may the Farce be with you.

Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 23 and Mondays from Nov. 27 through Dec. 18; 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9

Tickets: $10-$16 at theobt.retailregister.com or call 801-355-4628
