DCHS & UWS Present Christmas Musicale
By Tony Tracy
On Friday, December 2, 2016, The Douglas County History Theater will be hosting the 2016 Christmas Musicale which will feature some of the best musicians in the Twin Ports.
In conjunction with the University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Jazz Department, DCHS will present an evening of classic Holiday classics that will bring you back to an earlier, less hectic, time of our lives.
Christmas cards featuring images from the great Norman Rockwell gave us all a warm and fuzzy feeling. We may have had differences with other, but we all seemed to pull together when it was needed…especially during the Holidays.
This year’s show features the UWS Jazz Combo Directed by Greg Moore and the vocal styling’s of Tanya Moore, Beth Hazelton, Gracie Gustafson, Amie Miller and Ricky Christensen.
Personally, I recall my childhood in a small town, snow falling through the street lights, and our town’s Christmas decorations. I looked forward to our annual visits to “Toyland” in the basement of the local Cooperative Mercantile store.
As you passed people on the street everyone had a smile with rosy cheeks and children playing in the snow with no fear of a strangers glance.
At the DCHS this year we are striving to provide a warm, safe environment that is decked out in the colors of the holidays. Just maybe, if you close your eyes as you hear beautiful voices singing classic songs, you may journey back in your lifetime.
Tickets for this show are just $10 for general admission, $7 for Members and seniors, $5 for students and children accompanied by an adult under 10 years of age are free.
The DCHS building offer full accessibility for anyone that needs assistance to enjoy the program. Our elevator is on the left/south side of the building.
Holiday treats will be served along with regular & decaf coffee, punch and water. Tickets can be purchased online via our website at Douglashistory.org. You may also purchase tickets by visiting the Douglas County Historical Society at 1101 John Ave, Superior, WI 54880. For further questions call (715) 392-8449
