Our Next Virtual Play on Facebook

Two Performances Only--December 10 & 12

It’s just days before Christmas at Santa’s Workshop and a big blizzard has snowed everybody in! But there’s still work to be done — like getting the elves and reindeer in the proper holiday spirit with song, dance and big belly laughs. So, elf hosts Holly Daze and Mistletoe Merryman decide the North Pole’s annual talent show must go on... line! Mrs. Claus, the pun-loving Ruby the Red-Lipped Reindeer, and Old St. Nick himself join the hosts online to help judge this reality TV spoof. Bitterly cold Jack Frost and Snow Queen hack their way into the contest, but even they can’t take the warmth and good spirit out of this friendly competition! The cast includes 15 people, both kids and adults. Most are veterans of the Bell Tower stage but a few are making the Bell Tower Theater debut.  


Performances will take place on the Bell Tower Theater's Facebook page. You must log onto Facebook at the listed time to watch. Due to copyright restrictions, performances will not remain online.

Thursday, December 10 at 7 pm

Saturday, December 12 at 7 pm

 Check out the Facebook event page, here.


The performances are free, but donations are encouraged.
