Tickets are selling fast and we’re looking forward to sold out shows for most, if not all, performances. There are still good seats available for Sunday’s 7:30 PM show.

In keeping with our priority of keeping our patrons, performers and staff safe, we are requiring masks while in the theater. Let’s only catch the Holiday Spirit while we’re enjoying the magic of dance this weekend!
