Set to the sounds of classical, jazz, and klezmer music, this rambunctious and witty dance performance takes families on a fantastical journey where socks become ice skates, empty packages become turntables, and the dinner table has a life of its own. Holiday Unwrapped is the perfect way to welcome in the season, with a message that it’s better to dance with the box on your head than to fret over what’s inside.

This year, WYEP will be celebrating the holiday spirit at Stage AE on Thursday, December 12th with a slew of local musicans playing classic holiday tunes. We will be serving up the holiday cheer at our featured cookie table as we attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for Biggest Cookie Table!
This year, we are excited to announce a partnership with local non-profit organization Jeremiah's Place. Jeremiah's Place is dedicated to advocating for the well-being of young children during times of family emergencies. By providing safe care for the child and connecting struggling families to established resources, Jeremiah's Place betters Pittsburgh by educating families and providing protective care for those in need while also giving a voice to child abuse prevention.
In joining their mission to provide comfort to children in need, we are inviting guests to bring new, unused pajamas for children ages 0-6 to Stage AE the night of the Holiday Hootenanny. Those who bring pajamas will be given a WYEP Music Sampler CD, as a way of thanking them for helping this amazing organization!
