Kaden Hinkle and Katie Phipps, two young but seasoned Denver stage professionals, were chosen from a local audition to perform as part of the ensemble while the national touring production of A Christmas Story, The Musical plays The Buell Theatre.
In the video above, DCPA Senior Arts Journalist John Moore and Video Producer David Lenk followed Katie in the hour before she made her big entrance, through her actual appearance on the Buell Theatre stage on Dec. 22. Includes comments from young castmate Caroline Howard.
Kaden’s week with the show is over. Phipps, 11, performs from Dec. 22-27 (the matinee performance only on Dec 27; no appearance on Christmas Eve).
