The best present a person can receive is love, but the second-best present is a box of puppies wrapped in money. Give a gift that is almost as good as a cash-wrapped dog box with today's Groupon to the Merrimack Hall Performing Arts Center. Choose between two upcoming Christmas shows:

- For $24, you get two tickets to The Three Redneck Tenors: A Christmas Spec-tac Yule-ar on December 11 at either 2 p.m. or 7:30 p.m., or on December 12 at 2 p.m. or 5 p.m. (a $64 value).
From within its exposed-brick walls and 302 plush red seats, Merrimack Hall delivers intimate performances by national and international acts. It's a Wonderful Life pays homage to the golden age of radio with a live broadcast of the timeless Yuletide heart warmer. Using just a small group of talented actors, clever sound effects, and the difficult-to-work-with ghost of Orson Welles, the audience's imagination will bring Bedford Falls to life as George Bailey evaluates the true value of his trapped existence with the help of a kindly angel-in-training.
During The Three Redneck Tenors: A Christmas Spec-tac Yule-ar, audiences can soak up some melodious mulletry as actual Broadway actors belt out holiday hits in a trailer-park setting draped in tinsel. Featured on America's Got Talent, the trio of Billy Joe, Billy Bob, and Billy Billee will humorously hickify holiday hits such as "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," and more. Besides glowing with the joys of the season, audiences can also take pride in assisting Merrimack Hall's community outreach programs, which include master classes and workshops for kids with special needs.
The Redneck Tenors have received press from around the country. The group was featured on America's Got Talent. The Dallas Morning News and TCPalm.com reviewed shows. Pegasus News and the Las Vegas Review-Journal interviewed the trio.
