Celebrate ‘The 12 Days of Christmas,’ Tower District-style

Editor’s note: This article was originally published in December 2018.

How many calories can you cram into “The 12 Days of Christmas”? When you’re Good Company Players, the answer is a lot of trips to the gym in January. The local version of the ubiquitous song was a hit when it debuted in the thoroughly charming “Good Company for Christmas,” which delivered holiday cheer to audiences at the 2nd Space Theatre in 2018. The lyrics aren’t all about food — gotta get those GCP product placements in there — but remember it’s the product of working actors and is restaurant-heavy.

As my Christmas gift to you, here are the GCP lyrics. For the full experience, turn on the funky instrumental music below.

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ...

Twelve Mama Mia meatballs ...

Eleven Irene's bagels ...

A 10-inch Me-en-Ed's pizza ...

Nine shrimp from the Golden ...

Eight Venti Starbucks ...

Seven chicken pies ...

Six shows at Roger Rocka's ...

Five items from the Dollar Tree ...

Four Piemonte's specials ...

Three Ritchie's hot dogs ...

Two Cuca's tacos ...

And a season ticket to the 2nd Space.
