“‘Tis the Season” at the Cary Arts Center throughout December

Getting into the holiday spirit is a common thread across the Town of Cary. With great events featuring a number of themes “ringing in the holiday cheer,” it would only be natural that the rich cultural roots of Cary share in the spirit. Thus, both at the beginning and end of December at the Cary Arts Center there will be special holiday shows taking center stage.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever will run five shows in four days in early December.

Cary Players to Present The “Best Christmas Pageant Ever”

Adapted from the best-selling, hilarious, Christmas classic, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” comes to Cary Arts Center on December 6. This “yule-tide” favorite will be presented by the talented Cary Players and will grace the stage for five performances.

The official Cary Players website (caryplayers.org) describes the play, by Barbara Robinson as follows. “In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids.” It continues, “Probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem, and the fun, when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!”

“A Mowtown Christmas” Returns

On the heels of a fun-filled sold-out run in December of 2018, the final weekend of December will see the return of “A Mowtown Christmas.”

After three completely sold out shows last year, Pure Life Theatre and the Town of Cary bring this hit production back for 2019. Running once each day over the weekend of December 27-29, the show’s return will no doubt be a hot ticket.

“Fueled by an exceptional cast, this musical revue celebrates the holiday songs of Motown,” townofcary.org proclaims. “Enjoy a unique holiday experience full of soul and joy, wrapped up with a message of love.”
