Three Stages has a holiday show for nearly every taste and age this month.
Featuring talent from Ireland and Russia to just down the road, shows with singing and dancing will make your holiday season even more magical.
Local vocal groups bring breathtaking harmonies and songs to celebrate the spirit of the season. Cantare Chorale presents The Night Before Christmas, Placer Pops Chorale brings A Holiday Homecoming, and the Sacramento Master Singers offers A Celtic Christmas. The all-male ensemble, American River Chorus, joins with Sacramento-based Chanteuses, an all women troupe, to present A Holiday Celebration II.
The diverse musical selections featured in the Folsom Symphony’s Of Joy and Fate will get you in the mood to trim the tree, as will the lively dancing and music brought to you by Compañia Mazatlán Bellas Artes’ Posada Navideña and Pamela Hayes Classical Ballet’s performance of The Nutcracker.
Not to be outdone by the “locals,” Bay Area-based California Theatre Center offers a kid-friendly production of The Elves and the Shoemaker. International sensation Moscow Classical Ballet will also bring The Nutcracker. The very popular performance, An Irish Christmas (both shows sold out last year), will feature traditional dance, lively music and wonderful storytelling – giving you the feel and fun of Christmas in the Emerald Isle.
“Come and celebrate the season at Three Stages,” Executive Director Dave Pier suggests. “You won’t be disappointed.”
