"That (the icy weather) is a pretty hefty hit to our annual revenue.," says Anthony Nelson, SCP artistic director. "Like many theaters, both community and professional, the holiday show is one of the biggest money makers of the year and we depend on the revenue of these types of shows to produce quality productions all year long … And so to help make up for the loss, we have added a Wednesday night performance on the 18th and we are also in the works of producing a special encore production of the show for New Year’s Eve. On Dec. 31, the show will begin at 9 p.m. and afterwards, we will be having, basically, a party in the reception room where the Plaids will sing selected songs from the original, such as Perfidia, Cry and Sixteen Tons, and in a more intimate setting. There will be food, beverages, balloons and all the fixings to ring in the Near Year right, with Plaid style."


Tickets for all of the shows can be purchased through the SCP box office at 903-892-8818. The box office, located inside the Honey McGee Playhouse, is also open to the public from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The ticket cost for the New Year’s Eve performance and party will be $25. Regular performances are priced at $16 for adults and $8 for students.
