It's mid-December of 1958 and the Stardust club has been hired to host a hurry-up wedding reception for a mysterious couple. Itís a race to beat the clock, further complicated by the arrival of a social worker looking for a fugitive from a foster home. And sheís pretty sure sheís looking in the right place. But the show must go on, and the gang sings and dances some of the greatest rat pack and rockíníroll songs of the era in their search for holiday magic. Harlequin Productions presents The Stardust Christmas Commotion. This is the nineteenth year of the South Soundís Stardust Christmas tradition. The show runs through the 31st at the Historic State Theater on 4th Avenue in Downtown Olympia. For tickets and more information, see harlequinproductions.org.
