Remember when the TV networks would give some star of the day a brightly lit Christmas wonderland and 18 guest stars for a spectacle known reverently as the Christmas Special? The ETC cast is bringing back this cheesy tradition of goofy sketches, holiday songs, and some visits from some unexpected (and possibly uninvited!) guests. Sit back and enjoy our salute to the variety shows of yore - and maybe even win a prize! Conveniently located at SoHo Square in Homewood's fancy new Entertainment District - with several eateries and watering holes just a few steps away! It's a whole date night in one convenient package!

The Killing Bird is BACK!
To Mock a Killing Bird
December 30 and New Year's Eve at 8:00pm

There's a big time holiday party - but there's only one problem: somebody's committed a murder! This hilarious whodunnit will introduce you to some of the most outrageous suspects and crime solvers you could ever imagine, and with a different group of suspects and new surprises at each performance, no two shows are ever alike. A'ight, y'all, who did it? You tell us - and see if you can solve our annual Yuletide homicide!
