Charles Phoenix: Retro Holiday Slide Show

With insightful commentary, clever wit and a keen eye for quirky detail, pop culture humorist Charles Phoenix comes to REDCAT bearing his unmatched collection of vintage slides—unforgettable documents of holidays past—as he roasts and toasts mid-century life and style. Phoenix’s beloved annual offering gives glory to the spirit of celebration, including holidays from throughout the year, in one time-traveling journey. Experience politically incorrect New Year’s Rose Parade floats, a bizarre Lamb Cake Contest on Easter Sunday, and an explosion of patriotic pride on the Fourth of July. Followed by howlingly funny homemade Halloween costumes, the truly tragic life of a Thanksgiving turkey, and a Yuletide bondage party.

This retro revelry is sure to get everyone in the mood for the season to come, and Phoenix helps point the way with forecasts on retro-inspired trends in decadent décor, crafty creations, gift ideas, fun food, and more.

Festive holiday dress is encouraged, if not expected!
