Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken will meet fans and give away prizes at the box office opening for their new Broadway Christmas concert, Ruben & Clay's First Annual Christmas Carol Family Fun Pageant Spectacular Reunion Show (or, Ruben and Clay's Christmas Show).

To celebrate the Imperial Theatre's box office opening, the pair will be on hand on November 19 from 1pm to 2pm signing limited edition posters for the first 100 people in line, a holiday ornament for the first 250 people to arrive, and treats courtesy of Nuchas.

The American Idols will play the Imperial Theatre December 7-30, with opening night set for December 11. Jeffrey Chrzczon, Side Effects Include, and Josh Pultz/Amplified Entertainment serve as producers.

Studdard and Aiken reunite onstage for the first time since the second season American Idol finale in 2003, which named Studdard winner and Aiken runner-up. Tickets will benefit the National Inclusion Project, the leading voice for the inclusion of children with disabilities. The concert will feature Christmas songs, hilarious scenes and sketches, and a live band.
