St. Clair College’s Merry Christmas 1967 brings the magic of Christmas alive for audiences and elves alike with show-stopping dancing and vibrant musical numbers that echo the free spirit of the 1960s.
This year’s celebration takes a nod from the College’s 50th Anniversary festivities, which have taken place throughout the year. The show transports audience members to Christmas of 1967, the year the college was first established, and features a groovy sound track of classic re-mastered hit songs made famous by artists like the Monkees, Stevie Wonder and the Beatles.
The show is an opportunity for the students of St. Clair College’s Music Theatre Performance program to perform polished tap numbers and heartwarming traditional choral Christmas songs. Students in the Entertainment Technology program will be responsible for a dynamic pyrotechnics display to bring the whole production to a rousing finale.
“We are always proud to bring the spirit of Christmas to our audiences,” says director Katherine Kaszas, “Students in both programs have built a remarkable show that will get audiences dancing in the aisles.”
Merry Christmas 1967 will be performed at the Chrysler Theater on Dec. 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m, and Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students and can be purchased at the Chrysler Theatre’s box office or online.
