Dashing Through the Snow – Parental Guidelines
Some material in Dashing Through the Snow may not be appropriate for children. Asheville Community Theatre gives the show a movie rating of PG – Parental Guidance Suggested.
Two elderly sisters engage in a brief skirmish. Harried innkeeper Trina has had it with an extremely annoying guest and threatens to shoot him with a shotgun. Another character threatens to strangle an unseen rival.
A chef (whom we never see) mentions a bottle of Jim Beam. Later, she mistakenly reads a can of “brandied peaches” as “candied peaches” and drinks all the syrup. We hear her slur her words afterwards. In the last scene, several characters each drink a beer.
A couple dressed as Mrs. Claus and an elf have met at the B&B for a liaison. We find out that they’re a married couple who often don costumes and alternate personas to keep the zip in their marriage. There’s reference to buying lingerie. We are shown the lingerie, though we never see it on. The couple has a long smooch and redeclare their love for each other. In another scene, we hear that the groom-to-be has seduced several ladies prior to his wedding day. The bride-to-be wears an untraditional wedding dress, and we can see her Spanx-like shorts.
