The Idaho Statesman Newspaper Article

After Knock 'Em Dead's opening performance on Friday kicked off their run in style their production was covered in the entertainment section of their local newspaper, The Idaho Statesman.

The link to the online edition of the newspaper recently plopped into my inbox. Not only does it give the theatre company a much needed shout-out but it also, rather kindly, gives me a nice little name-check.

Thanks to Mary McGreaham, not only for keeping me updated on how the production is coming along, but also for printing up my message to the cast and crew and posting it in their dressing room for all to read.

"Holiday entertainment around the Treasure Valley
Area theaters deck their stages with fun.
By Dana Oland

Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like the ghosts in “A Christmas Carol,” Charles Dickens’ eternal Victorian tale of the miserly Scrooge, whose icy heart is melted by three visiting ghosts who help him redeem his loveless life.
It’s a story that never misses its mark, and as a play it’s popular holiday fare. Though there is no standing traditional production in Boise, one of the area theater companies usually puts it on during the season.
Last year, a touring production came through. This year, it’s Knock ’em Dead Dinner Theatre rattling Marley’s chains.
Director Mary McGreaham chose Scott Harrison’s 2003 theatrical adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” at Knock ’em Dead. It opens this weekend.
This is the first time KED has produced the show. Because the company’s usual fare is musicals, expect this straight play to be peppered with caroling, fiddlers and other musical elements, she says.
It plays Thursdays through Saturdays Nov. 19 through Dec. 18.
