What is RomaDrama Christmas?

RomaDrama Christmas celebrates all the warmth and inclusiveness of the Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas!
Friday, Dec. 2 (6:30 p.m.), we offer a sneak peek of ‘A Fabled Holiday’ starring Ryan Paevey and Brook D’Orsay. The screening will be followed by a fun behind-the-scenes Q&A, hosted by Variety’s Emily Longeretta, and featuring Ryan, Brooke, and director, Ruby Munro (A Mrs. Miracle Christmas, The Magicians, and more). After magical holiday goodness, we move into the Christmas dream gala, which will offer food, drinks, and unlimited celebrity interactions with all our celebrity guests.

Saturday, Dec. 3 (8:00 a.m.) offers all things Santa, Elves, and Three Wise Men! Join us in your Christmas Jammies for a Grown-Up Breakfast with Santa. Eat waffles, Drink a Christmassy breakfast cocktail (Boozy Hot Chocolate, anyone?) and make merry with all our celebrity guests. Once we’ve had our merry fill, we will enjoy a live commentary screening of ‘Three Wise Men and a Baby’. Get all the behind-the-scenes details, stories from the set and witty repertoire you’ll only hear from the actors and director, Terry Ingram (Wedding Veil trilogy, Marry Me at Christmas, Chesapeake Shores and so many more!) themselves! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you won’t want to miss!

Following the screening, small group meet and greets will be offered with Tyler Hynes and Paul Campbell. Details will be offered on site.
