The holiday season brings with it an air of pageantry in many different ways. Elaborate decorations line the streets, and holiday-themed clothing is paraded by people of all walks.
Christmas is also a time when live performances are held to celebrate the spirit of the season. While schools are often the traditional locales for such shows, The Merry Widow is keeping this concept traditionally untraditional with “A Very Merry Christmas Extravaganza.”
This show took shape in the days of the Alabama Music Box. Since then, it has become an annual tradition both for the performers and the audience. A group known only as the Christmas Band, comprising an assortment of local musicians, will welcome two special vocalists this year. Buffy Logan of The Colonel Dixies and Symone French of Infant Richard & the Delta Stones will lend their voices to this celebration.
