KEYSER — Apple Alley Players will be bringing the sights and sounds of the season to the stage when they present their annual Christmas Spectacular on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 8 p.m. in the Keyser High School theater.

Stephen Gumtz is The Grinch and Connor Spurling portrays his dog Max in a scene from Apple Alley Players’ Christmas Spectacular.

Fresh on the heels of their crowd-pleasing production of “Hairspray,” the local thespians are trading in their bouffant hairdos and ’60s-era songs for green fur, Santa outfits and jingle bells as they get into the Christmas spirit.

The Christmas Spectacular will feature several song vignettes from the season, including those featuring The Grinch and his dog Max and “The 12 Days of Christmas.”

Stephen Gumtz will reprise his role as The Grinch, with Connor Spurling as Max, to perform “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” while students from the Frostburg Dance Academy will present several Christmas numbers.

According to director Alex McDonald, some area church choirs may also contribute to the reason for the season.

Among Apple Alley familiars planning to participate, in addition to Gumtz and Spurling, are: Dannagale Acord, Maddie Bohrer, Glen and Stacey Metz, Tommy Nester, Josh Hanson, Chesea Brinker and Alex McDonald. More familiar faces are entirely possible. Apple Alley fans are invited to come see who winds up on stage and in the spirit.

Tickets for this one-night-only show are $15 for adults and $10 for students, and will be available at the door. For further information, email
