Ye Olde Merry Holiday T.V. Spectacular

December 18–19, 2015
Theater on the Square

If you are of a pre-millennial generation, you may remember those wonderful Christmas television variety show specials that filled the airwaves. (They were “airwaves” in those days…no such thing as “streaming” then.) Hosted by the likes of Perry Como, Andy Williams, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, and more, these shows carried us into the season with memorable songs, a few jokes, and a lot of good Ye Olde-fashioned sentiment. We saw all the big stars singing, dancing and spreading warmth on those wintry December evenings. Yes, something to be remembered! And now, revived! Live on stage, we bring you a trip down memory lane, as we present some wonderful talent in the tradition of those old television specials. Imagine yourself a part of the studio audience, as we take you back to the 1950s and 60s with this one of a kind “television” event. And if you are too young to have memories of the original productions, you can start building new memories here and now! We hope you enjoy the show!
