This weekend only, Ovation West Theatre Company presents The Christmas Spider, the charming, heart-warming seasonal musical for kids from one to ninety two.

Watch the video here and get a sneak behind-the-scenes and hear from the show’s librettist John De Los Santos, who serves as stage director for the west coast premiere.

The Christmas Spider follows the story of a poor family who is down on their luck, a cold-hearted landlady, and a conspicuously kind-hearted arachnid who inspires compassion and forgiveness. Ovation West Performing Arts is partnering with EChO Food Bank by holding a food drive during the month of December. For every ticketed patron who brings a food donation to The Christmas Spider, we will donate $1 toward the drive. Performances are December 2nd at 2:30 and 7:30, and December 3rd at 2:30 at Center Stage. Tickets available here.
