Catch a little Christmas music at Shelton's Center Stage
The spirit of the holiday season will be on display during Center Stage Theatre’s musical revue “A Center Stage Christmas” from Dec. 6 to 22.
The show features Francesca Scarpa and a cast of performers presenting many classics of the season. Performances are held each weekend, with tickets at $25 for adults and $10 for students.
The theater's annual holiday productions are always popular with the community, according to Gary Scarpa, the show's director. Previous shows have included "A Christmas Carol" and "Miracle on 34th Street," which played sold-out runs in 2011 and 2012.
"This year, we're bringing audiences into our living room to share some of our favorite traditions,” Gary Scarpa said.
"Music is such a special part of the holidays, and we're excited to celebrate that feeling with the community," he said. "From the beautiful classics to the fun family favorites, there is something for everyone."
Shows on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
Performances will take place Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. A Thursday show will be offered Dec. 19 at 7 p.m.
The nonprofit Center Stage Theater is at 54 Grove St. (the former Lafayette School), Shelton. For ticket information, visit www.centerstageshelton.com or call 203-225-6079.
