|Chester Fritz Auditorium lists December events|
Tickets are still available for several great productions this December.
Hairspray - Saturday, Dec. 6, 7:30 p.m.
It's 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire - to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to vanquish the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network - all without denting her 'do! Don't miss Hairspray, Broadway’s musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. As The New York Times says, “If life were everything it should be, it would be more like Hairspray. It’s irresistible!”
Sister's Christmas Catechsim “The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold” - Sunday, Dec. 14, 7:30 p.m.
It’s "Forensic Files goes to Bethlehem" in this holiday mystery extravaganza, by the author of Late Nite Catechism and Late Nite Catechism 2, as Sister takes on the mystery that has intrigued historians throughout the ages – whatever happened to the Magi’s gold? (“We know that Mary used the frankincense and myrrh as a sort of potpourri - they were in a barn after all.”) Retelling the story of the nativity, as only Sister can, this hilarious holiday production is bound to become a yearly classic. Employing her own scientific tools, assisted by the Grand Cities Children’s Choir as well as a gaggle of audience members, Sister creates a living nativity unlike any you’ve ever seen. With gifts galore and bundles of laughs, Sister’s Christmas Catechism is sure to become the newest addition to your holiday traditions.
The Messiah - Tuesday, Dec. 16, 7:30 p.m.
Grand Forks Central and Red River High School music departments join together to bring back the Christmas choruses of Handel’s Messiah. With 150 voices and 70 strings, this will be an evening for the entire family. Welcome this holiday season. Stand and join in the singing of the Hallelujah Chorus. Make Handel’s Messiah a family tradition.
Lorie Line and her Pop Chamber Orchestra - Sunday, Dec. 21, 3 and 7 p.m.
This year’s show will feature Christmas traditions, costumes and music from around the world. The show will highlight some of the most fabulous cultures celebrated in other countries. Bring the entire family as kids (ages 4 and up) will be invited to the stage to visit with Santa at the North Pole. Sure to be a great night of world music and fabulous costumes!
