A Return to Traditions
By Laura Strader
The Canton Palace Theatre is looking forward to a return to traditions this holiday season. One of the best ways to get excited for the holidays is by revisiting beloved pastimes with family and friends, and with the programming set for November and December there’s something for everyone. We hope that you’ll join us to carry on old traditions or make new ones.
The Wizards of Winter will be returning to the Canton Palace Theatre stage to present their holiday rock opera on Saturday, December 4 at 7:30 pm. The group features musicians from bands including The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rainbow, Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent Band, and The Irish Tenors, along with Broadway and Theater veterans. The show also serves as a celebration of the theatre’s 95th Anniversary on November 22.
The show entitled “The Christmas Dream” is fit for all ages and will entertain the whole family. According to founding member Scott Kelly, “We take the audience on a musical journey inside a snow globe aboard a metaphysical vehicle, the Arctic Flyer, in search of the meaning of Christmas. Some parts of the story are happy, some are melancholy; our music encompasses the vast range of feelings people experience during the holiday season.
It is an emotional roller coaster ride, told throughout original compositions which range from ballads to prog-metal. There is something in the show for everyone in the family.” Tickets for this show are available now by contacting the Canton Palace Theatre Box Office.
It just wouldn’t feel like the holidays without Christmas movies, and with the 2021 Holiday Movie Series you can catch your favorites on Canton’s largest screen. See classics like “A Christmas Story” and “The Polar Express” the way they were intended to be viewed and grab some delicious treats from the concession stand for the ultimate movie experience.
Sure, you could watch movies from the comfort of your own couch, but haven’t we all had enough of that in the last year and a half? Make plans to take the whole family, and don’t forget to look up to see the “stars.” The full schedule of films will be announced soon, so stay tuned to cantonpalacetheatre.org and the theatre’s social media channels for updates.
Whether you don your holiday best, an ugly Christmas sweater, or even your pjs (especially for “The Polar Express”), we hope that you’ll join us at the Canton Palace Theatre this holiday season.
