Gary Schiavone, executive director of the Strand, said, “The Wag’s sense of humor and their homemade props and costumes are worth the price of admission alone!”

The show also features a running theme of “Christmas Around the World.” There will be holiday songs and sketches from Ireland, Germany, Spain, and more! The four-piece New Jersey Wags band has been entertaining audiences for more than 23 years with four lead vocalists, catchy melodies, and sophisticated harmonies. For more information visit
