Virginia Musical Theatre bounds along in its 21st season, nurturing artists and lifting denizens’ hearts with song. Holiday Melody: The Tradition jumpstarts dormant Yuletide spirits with a splendorous evening replete with singing, dancing, and big-band frolics. Emceeing the show, Hampton Roads’ hometown chanteuse Pamala Stanley exudes effervescent charm, sharing a festive voice that has been heard on MTV and at numerous North Pole discotheques. More than 30 singers and dancers, including Bill Griggs and Lindsay Eure, join the 17 members of veteran trumpeter Roy Muth’s Big Band to capsize the tinsel-strewn stage. Classic holiday songs fill the air, along with bombastic choreography, inviting festive audiences to partake in the decking of halls and harking of harks.
