Let’s visit Boston for the holidays!
First up, Sweet Harmony – a singing troupe based at Hyde Park’s Riverside Theatre Works — stars in Christmas in Harmony, premiering tonight at 9 pm ET on CatholicTV. Songs include “O Holy Night,” “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “Do You Hear What I Hear?”
The half-hour special also airs Thursday, December 21, at 5 pm; Saturday, December 23, at 3:30 am; Sunday, December 24, at 2 am and 6 pm; and Christmas Day at 1 pm.
Then, starting Thursday at 7 pm, let’s head up to the North End’s Improv Asylum theater for a 24-hour improv comedy fundraiser. Streaming live on Facebook, the annual No Rest for the Wicked Funny benefit raises funds for Globe Santa, which provides gifts to families in need throughout Greater Boston. Tune into facebook.com/Improvasylum through Friday at 7 pm for the free laughs.
Finally, let’s celebrate Christmas in Boston with a TV movie touting that name. Starring Marla Sokoloff (The Practice, Full/Fuller House) and Patrick J Adams (Suits), this rom-com first aired on ABC Family (now Freeform) in 2005. Here’s the whole film to stream anytime:
Incidentally, according to the closing credits, Christmas in Boston was “shot on location” – in Ontario.
