Since 1967, Singing Christmas Tree’s massive troupe of carolers, actors and hall-deckers have delighted audiences with heartwarming tales of Christmas cheer alit with the festive glow of 100,000 holiday lights. In this season’s The Gift, a high-society shopper searches the big city for the perfect present, only to find invaluable insight into the true meaning of Christmas. The Yuletide tale takes place on an elaborate stage bedecked in thousands of twinkling bulbs, a living nativity scene, and the magical flurry of faux snow. Accompanying the production is a full orchestra and chorus of 175, filling Life Center’s acoustically excellent hall with festive carols and harmonized imitations of a partridge eating a pear. Life Center offers free parking, and welcomes viewers and vehicles young and old to partake in this treasured holiday staple.
