The 59th Annual Singing Christmas Tree
The soaring voices of Carolina Voices’ MainStage Choir take center stage atop a 32’ sparkling Tree in this brand new production of The 59th Annual Singing Christmas Tree. Directed by Peter Leo, the Tree is one of Charlotte’s most beloved holiday traditions, filled with a rich array of Christmas music, and performances by special guests such as the magical Grey Seal Puppets, the energetic Eddie Mabry Dancers, vocalist John Fulton and the amazing aerial dance of Caroline Calouche. A special visit from St. Nick adds to the warmth and excitement of this holiday spectacular that’s perfect for the whole family!


The Singing Christmas Tree for KIDS*
Starring the Grey Seal Puppets
Get into the spirit of the season with your children at this family-friendly, one hour show that includes rousing sing-a-longs, favorite kids holiday tunes, magical puppets, amazing dancers and, of course, a ho-ho-ho-ing Santa! This year, the kids will take a journey with Grey Seal Puppet’s Roquefort the Mouse who asks the question, “Where is Christmas?” A wonderful story with a heartfelt meaning that is perfect for children ages 3 to 10 and for those young at heart!
