Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, It’s Christmas in Springfield! And there’s nothing like the holidays and a little snow to bring crazy to our pocket-sized towns! What’s in store for us this time? Well, we’re tasked with seeing if Grampa can bore Death…well to death! Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Old Theatre District and Abbey to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this London duo to your town…

-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate
-Comes with a questline
-Lisa has a premium 4hr job at the Old Theatre District, Admire Broke Thespians
-Only helps with Act 2
-Abbey does not use the Old Theatre District for her tasks.
-Animated tasks are so-so. Not awful, but not great.
-Very Large footprint. And you cannot separate the two buildings.
Not a bad pickup. Considering there will only be 4 new premium combos (or items in general) with this event, worth the pickup. She’s fun, the Old Theatre District adds nicely to a London area of town, and she’s voiced. One of the few characters this event that is voiced.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I already picked it up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at the tasks…
