A Very Merry Christmas features a 30-foot tall tree structure with an 80-voice choir, accompanied by a 40-piece symphonic orchestra
SACRAMENTO, CA, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Singing Christmas Tree has become a Northern California tradition for 63 years. This year’s show entitled, “A Very Merry Christmas,” will be an unforgettable celebration featuring iconic Christmas music, dazzling entertainment, and scintillating sights and sounds taking place December 6th – 15th, 2019.
Each year hundreds of volunteers spend thousands of hours preparing and rehearsing for this annual holiday tradition held the first two weekends in December at the Capital Christian Center, located at 9470 Micron Ave in Sacramento.
The Singing Christmas Tree features a 80-voice choir, a 40-piece symphonic orchestra, the Capital Kids choir, choreography, drama, and SCT Soloists. The show is set in two acts, complete with gorgeous costuming and beautiful sets and lighting.
This year’s brand new production unfolds when a big city reporter, Rosie, is assigned to write about how a small town, Stewartsville, celebrates Christmas. The majority of the town is owned by a crusty fella, Henry, who only has one thing on his mind at Christmas: making money! From the opening curtain to the final scene watch as Rosie has to deal with Henry and how the townsfolk make a lasting impression on them both. Elements of the Newsies and Mary Poppins will be reflected.
