Field Hall Presents: The Queen’s Cartoonists Holiday Hurrah
Dec 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$15 – $60
The show includes traditional holiday vocal numbers (“White Christmas” “Jingle Bells”, you know… the regular stuff), paired with jazz arrangements and festive animated films. There’s also a good amount of novelty and comedy (Spike Jones is due for a revival anytime now, we just know it!) Don’t forget ridiculous props, Foley sound effects, and even a holiday-themed game show! Finally, wonder and laugh at the band’s take on the bizarre film “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians”! Yule love it! Pulling from over 100 years of animation, TQC’s performances are perfectly synchronized to the films projected on stage. The band matches the energy of the cartoons, leading the audience through a world of virtuosic musicianship, multi-instrumental mayhem, and comedy. Projections of animated films dazzle, while the band re-creates original soundtracks note-for-note, or writes their own fresh compositions to modern pieces, all the while breathing new light into two uniquely American forms.
