A Holly Jolly Christmas
Thu, Dec 12 - Tue, Dec 17
We’re trimming the tree, decking Jaqua Hall & singing our favorite Christmas carols! Jesse Cloninger and The Emerald City Jazz Kings welcome you to our 14th annual Shedd family Christmas Concert - A Holly Jolly Christmas. Jesse and Shirley (who can’t be on stage for the show because she’s lead in The Shedd’s winter production of She Loves Me) have put together a warm, festive show featuring all of your favorite Christmas standards, as well as some new surprises… “White Christmas”, “Sleigh Ride”, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, “Silver Bells”, “Let It Snow”, “It’s A Marshmallow World”, “Here Comes Santa Claus”, “Rudolph”, “Toyland”, “O Holy Night”, “Joy To The World”, “Silent Night”. Don’t forget to spruce up your singing chops to join in on some good old fashioned sing-a-longs! As always, it will be an evening for the entire family not to be missed!
