Let’s hear it for these wintry delights! Cast members from A Beautiful Noise joined Theatrely in Gallow Green at The McKittrick Hotel for an ugly sweater holiday party of epic proportions. Inspired by everyone’s favorite fashion during the season, The Noise (as the ensemble are lovingly called) were styled by Jake Sokoloff and photographed by Michaelah Reynolds.

Check out Robert Pendilla, Jess LeProtto, Makai Hernandez, Aaron James McKenzie, Samantha Gershman, Ninako Donville, Jordan Dobson, and Pascal Pastrana below.
