A Christmas Carol

When Charles Dickens wrote his “ghostly little tale” in 1843, he couldn’t have known that A CHRISTMAS CAROL was destined to become one of the most beloved holiday traditions of all time. And that tradition is back at the Victoria Theatre this holiday season! Here’s your chance to start a tradition of your own with all those you hold dear! Victoria Theatre, Tuesday, 11/28/17, 7:30pm & Wednesday, 11/29/17, 7:30pm.


Little Women: A New Musical

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, Little Women focuses on the four March sisters — brassy, tomboy-like, aspiring writer Jo, romantic Meg, pretentious Amy, and kind-hearted Beth — and their beloved Marmee at home in Concord, Massachusetts. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio. Weekends December 1 to 9.


Christmas Cotillion

Do you remember Christmas dances from your school days? Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus does! Join the DGMC as they sing seasonal songs and holiday standards that will have you remembering your Christmas Cotillion. Grab your special squeeze and start the holiday season right.
