This year’s show features Lumberton’s own former Miss North Carolina Rebekah Revels Lowry, X-Factor Top 40 selection Brent Tyler, the beautifully staged dancing of the “Civettes” as well as exhilarating performances by the show’s adult and youth ensembles.

The theater will be decorated for Christmas, and there will be appearances by Frosty the Snowman, the Grinch and Santa Claus. An extra weekend of performances has been added to this year’s edition of what has become one of the most popular Christmas show’s in the region.


Please note that masks will be required for admission to this performance but proof of vaccination will not be required. The theater will post updates to its web site regularly.
