From local kids to Broadway performers, ‘A Hoboken Tale’ has it all

HOBOKEN – Now in its fourth year, the Garden Street Children’s Musical Theatre Company will perform their traditional holiday musical, “A Hoboken Tale,” from Dec. 11 to Dec. 13.
“There’s a lot of children in the show [which] is an original musical based in Hoboken about the holidays,” said Dan McLoughlin, who wrote and composed the musical. “The show started after Hurricane Sandy, after Hoboken suffered a devastating loss to local business because of flooding. The show has a lot to do with people supporting the community and those who live and work here.”
The theater company will hold performances on Friday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m., Dec. 12 at 2 and 7 p.m. and Dec. 13 at 3 p.m. at Hoboken High School, 800 Clinton St.
McLoughlin said new this year to the musical, which includes former Broadway performers, is a number of new songs including an all-cast opening number. Mile square city children and their parents also partake in the show.
“We are trying to encourage people to shop here. Instead of on the internet or malls, try to do your shopping in Hoboken,” McLoughlin said. “Of course people of all fates are welcome.”
