This holiday season has been so different than years past. Black Friday was almost every day in November and all online! No restaurants to go to and sit down in (governors orders!) Instead of a hot toy that is sold out at stores, we have to deal with shortages of toilet paper (it has not been as bad as it was back in March)! However, the thing I am really missing is performances and live shows. Well, look at the fun holiday virtual event that we found that is happening this Saturday!
Per the Hennepin Theatre Trust website…
Join us for a second night to light up your holidays with Christmas’ favorite couple, Ellen and Clark Griswold for this virtual salute to the holiday classic, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Chevy Chase (Clark) and Beverly D’Angelo (Ellen) lead audiences through this live event as they share fan-favorite clips from the movie, reveal their favorite memories from the making of the Vacation franchise and answer your questions in a live audience Q & A.
An original member of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase was the trailblazer who turned SNL success into Hollywood mega-stardom. The movies Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Fletch, and Three Amigos all contributed to making Chevy Chase a world-wide household name.
Perhaps best known for her portrayal of Ellen Griswold in the National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise, actress-singer Beverly D’Angelo has had an accomplished career spanning over four decades. Her acting resume includes roles in over 60 films and appearances in some of pop-cultures most celebrated television series including The Simpsons, Law & Order: SVU and Entourage.
Fans can expect the unexpected as these legends share a no-holds-barred trip down memory lane and unveil the behind-the-scenes secrets of the making of a blockbuster film franchise.
Add a new twist to your holiday tradition—gather the family and cozy up on the couch as we stream the Griswolds directly to your living room for this live virtual event that is fun for all ages. Chestnuts and eggnog recommended!
Recommended for ages 10+.
Tickets range from $25 all the way up to a VIP Package for $150 that includes: Entry into the livestream event and a one-minute one-on-one video chat with Chevy and Beverly
