Branson on the Road: Christmas Style 

Palace Theater – Wisconsin Dells, WI 

We’ll kick off our Christmas season by experiencing Branson on the Road’s great Christmas music, old country and gospel favorites! Witness their amazing instrumental abilities as they bring together a fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, and upright slap bass. With beautiful rhinestone costumes and plenty of hilarious comedy, we will love their Christmas Style! 


Flight 1225 

Essenhaus Heritage Hall – Middlebury, IN 

Experience the comic tale of five stranded airline passengers and one “sincerely helpful” airline employee who attempt to survive a severe snowstorm on Christmas Eve, destined to delay all departures from a quaint Midwestern airport. Like a good “mystery,” audiences will soon discover that not all passengers are who they seem to be. This redemptive tale shares the hope of eternal joy and concedes that even a “tyrant” can become jolly when subject to a strong dose of Christmas cheer! 


The Christmas Tree Ship 

Blue Gate Theatre – Shipshewana, IN 

Witness one family’s unsinkable mission to save Christmas in this delightful new musical, “The Christmas Tree Ship.” It’s all about a ship, a storm, and a Christmas story of heroic proportions! Inspired by a true story of one woman’s unsinkable determination to continue her late husband’s mission of bringing Christmas trees from upper Michigan, through the rough waters of Lake Michigan, to their underprivileged, Chicago community. 


Daniel O’ Donnell’s Christmas and More 

Blue Gate Theatre – Shipshewana, IN 

For the first time ever, Irish fans will be treated to a 3-hour Christmas and More show with Daniel O’Donnell! The first part of the show features the star entertaining his audience with a nostalgic trip down memory lane as he performs hit after hit. As the curtain rises on the second half, be transported to a Christmas wonderland with Daniel getting into festive mode as he sings all-time great Christmas classics and favorites! He will be joined by his long-time singing partner, Mary Duff. 


The Nutcracker – Madison Ballet 

Overture Hall – Madison, WI 

We will be thrilled by the athleticism and romance of classical ballet as the Madison Ballet presents “The Nutcracker.” With 150 dancers, a 25-ft Christmas tree, and 100% chance of snow, this timeless story filled with some of literature’s most treasured characters will ring in the holiday season! Set to Tchaikovsky’s familiar score played live by the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, this is sure to be an unforgettable experience! 


Holly Jolly Christmas 

Palace Theater – Wisconsin Dells, WI 

This most enjoyable musical is filled with dancing, holiday favorites, and a visit from the big guy in red himself! Be welcomed by Mr. and Mrs. Claus, travel around the wide world of holiday cheer with Christmas in Killarney and Feliz Navidad. See how special the holidays are at home with Merry Christmas With Love, The Christmas Song and then see Christmas through the eyes of a child. There’s a lot of dancing with Jingle Bell Rock, Blue Christmas (so you know who might show up!), I Got My Love to Keep Me Warm and more. We guarantee this show will make your holiday holly-er, jolly-er, merrier, and brighter!
