"One of Kansas City's finest actors Ashley Pankow makes her directorial debut with A SPECTACULAR CHRISTMAS SHOW, proving to Kansas City she is not only fabulous on the stage but behind the scenes as well.

If this is her directing debut I can't wait to see what she brings to the stage as she gains more experience." - BroadwayWorld
