Description

American Century Theater audiences are getting a special gift this holiday season: An American Century Christmas, a new musical special full of old classics, Christmas chestnuts, memories, laughs, tears and Christmas spirit. A reflection on how America celebrated Christmas between 1900 and 2000, An American Century Christmas contains selections from over 70 songs, including salutes to Gene Autry, romantic Christmas standards, animated Christmas specials, classic Christmas movies, and more, all presented in the format of the TV Christmas variety show specials that used to be staples of the family holiday experience.

Where else can you get O. Henry, Scrooge, George Bailey, Rudolf and “Santa Baby” in one show, along with mistletoe and “carols ‘round the tree”? If you think you’ll need a boost this year to get in the Christmas spirit, Theatre Two at the Gunston Arts Center is the place to go.
