Our community theaters have many festive shows for us to enjoy this holiday season.

One of things I love the most about our wonderful city, is that we have so many options to expose our children to the performing arts.  Between community theaters, art galleries, 2nd Saturday art walks and such- there is no excuse to not have our children exposed to the wonderful world of art.

And this month, with the holidays upon us we have a wide selection of festive plays and musicals to put us in the holiday spirit.

I have compiled a list of some local shows that you can enjoy with (or without) your kids.  These are sure to put a smile on your face, a “jingle in your step” and definitely put you in the mood for some holiday cheer!

A Christmas Carol at the Sacramento Theater Company.  This is the Classic tale of Scrooge and is showing through Dec. 23rd.  Cost is $17-$37.

The Gift of Magi at the B Street Theatre.  Join in the fun, whimsical world of cuddly forest friends at this heartfelt holiday show.  Showing through December 30th.  Cost is $18-$27.

Madeline’s Christmas- the Musical at Sutter Street Theater.  Showing December 8th-30th, enjoy the fun and loveable Madeline as she celebrates Christmas in Paris.

Peter Pan presented by Broadway Sacramento and the California Musical Theatre will be showing December 26th-30th at the Community Center Theater.

The Elves and the Shoemaker (perfect for preschool aged kids!) will be showing at the Three Stages Performing Arts Center in Folsom on December 9th.  Tickets are $8-15.

A Rock and Blues Christmas at the Veterans Memorial Center in Davis.  December 21st-23rd.

Reindeer Revolution at Chautauqua Playhouse in Carmichael.  Showing December 8th-22nd.  Tickets are $7

This is just a small sample of some of the great family shows out there in our community.  I’m excited to take my kids to see Junie B…. even though that crazy 1st grader can get into some trouble, my kindergartener loves her stories and I know she will adore the musical!

Have fun and Merry Christmas!
