"Some people hate (Christmas) or don't believe in it," Waters said. "I know some people find it a very stressful time. I have advice for everybody (whether) you love or hate it—it’s a self-help show."

Tickets for the show are $35 and available online at Waters also is slated to appear at a VIP reception before the performance, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at The Ellwanger Estate on Mt. Hope Avenue. Tickets for the reception are $50 for ImageOut members.
