The Wag’s sense of humor and their homemade props and costumes are worth the price of admission alone. The show also features a running theme of “Christmas Around the World”. There will be holiday songs and sketches from Ireland, Germany, Spain, & more! The Wag's Christmas Spectacular is sure to please the entire family.

With four lead vocalists, catchy melodies, and sophisticated harmonies, they will take you on a delightful holiday journey!
