Saint Patrick’s Church was alive with the sound of Yuletide music when the Narrows Community Theater performed a song and dance extravaganza with enough cheer to fill Radio City Music Hall.
The seasonal crowd-pleaser by Bay Ridge’s oldest performing arts organization — entitled, “Musical Christmas Ball” — had faithful fans and newcomers singing and toe-tapping along to a crowd-pleasing variety of non-traditional Christmas songs, including music from “A Christmas Carol,” “Polar Express” and “White Christmas.”
There were also a few surprises; among them, a tap dancing “feud” between artificial and real Christmas trees, and a nativity scene accompanied by a five part choral arrangement of “We Have Seen His Star.”
“Now, I’m ready for the holidays,” said Oscar Walcott, who brought his family to see the show.
