Sandie’s Arts Blog: North Texas Holiday Entertainment
As the holidays get even closer – let’s celebrate with some great North Texas entertainment!
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra brings back the popular seasonal tradition of Holiday Celebration. Holiday favorites as well as some special visitors will delight audiences of all ages at the Morton Meyerson through December 18th.
The smash hit musical revue production “Forever Plaid” will close the season for Flower Mound Performing Arts Theatre December 8-23 in their new space at the MCL Grand Black Box Theater, 100 North Charles Street, Lewisville. One of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory, this deliciously funny revue centers on four young, eager male singers, singing in the closest of harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision. It’s great fun for all ages!

It’s a wonderful holiday tradition not be be missed with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince and all the beautiful Sugar Plum fairies…and on stage snow to boot!

Thursday night you can catch CMA winner Bryan White at the Big D Opry special holiday concert at Gilley’s. The popular country singer will sing his favorites as well as some new (and hopefully some holiday tunes as well!) so bring out the whole family for some great music, boot scootin’ and great food at the world famous honky tonk!
Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth (best known from the original Broadway cast of Wicked) comes to the Nasher this Thursday evening for a special evening of conversation. The talented actress will share some insights into her career for the one night only Salon.
