Let It Snow Synopsis
Crane River Theater is thrilled to reprise our widely popular holiday production for the community of Holdrege and surrounding areas. Let It Snow will feature performances from local musicians and groups, as well as select numbers by artists from across the Midwest. More than one hundred performers from all ages will take the stage at The Tassel Performing Arts Center in Holdrege on December 8th for a 3pm performance. Classic Christmas moments will jump from the movie screen and into the voices of those performing. Believe from Polar Express, Santa Clause is Coming to Town from Elf, and You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch from How the Grinch Stole Christmas are just a few of the moments that will be shared with audiences. Mary Henning, a well-known artist and storyteller will narrate the production, while six premier groups and six outstanding soloists will perform musical selections. Among the groups performing are the OK Sisters, Gold Dust, The Group, Lead Me Home, The Spencer Hansen Group, Holdrege Children’s Choir and Holdrege Concert Choir. Santa Claus will even be making a special appearance before each of the performances, so kids are encouraged to come early so they can share their Christmas wishes with him. It will truly be a celebration for the whole family.
