Hope’s Top Holiday Theatre Picks

Share Article

We have a big list of holiday entertainment — from theatre to radio theatre to music performances — something for nearly anyone this season!

I recently had a chance to check out a few of these shows, and I wanted to share!

Peter Pan – The Fulton Theatre

The Fulton is celebrating the holidays with a production of the beloved musical Peter Pan, and it was the perfect way to kick off the magic of the season.

The show absolutely soars and shines (literally), and the cast is absolutely delightful. It’s impossible to not fall in love with the Lost Boys, and if the group’s talent is any indicator of what’s to come for the future of Lancaster’s art community, we’re in for an amazing ride!

I know Captain Hook and his gang of pirates are the show’s villains, but they are an absolute riot and it’s hard not to laugh out loud at their antics. It’s always fun to see a beloved story come to life on stage and the Fulton does it perfectly.

Peter Pan runs until December 29. Grab tickets here.

Who’s Holiday – Open Stage

Who’s Holiday is not only a great way to kick off the holiday season, but a great show to introduce Open Stage’s new space. The company recently opened its newly renovated space, featuring a new bar and stage. It’s a beautiful upgrade and I’m so happy to see Open Stage expand and grow.

Even as I write this, I’m still laughing at the show’s ridiculous quips and jokes.

Rachel Landon is an absolute superstar in this one-woman show starring a very grown-up Cindy Lou Who as she shares the twists and turns her life has taken since that fateful Christmas Eve when she met the Grinch.

It’s definitely not your traditional holiday story, but I left the theater full of holiday cheer! Definitely grab one of the handcrafted holiday cocktails from the new lobby bar, they only make the show even more hilarious.

Who’s Holiday runs select dates until Dec. 28. Grab tickets here.

Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn – Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre

The only better way to get ready for the holidays than listening to “White Christmas” is seeing the story that started it all.

I had no idea the iconic song was introduced during Holiday Inn, which follows a “retired” Broadway star as he owns an inn that is only operated on, you guessed it, the holidays. The show is a classic musical, with singing and dancing galore.

There’s also no better way to celebrate the holidays than with TONS of comfort food, so you definitely want to grab tickets that include either the dinner buffet or plated meal.

Holiday Inn runs until January 4.

Of course, the holiday season is only just starting, and I can’t wait to check out the rest of the shows, concerts, and performances the area has to offer. Happy Thanksgiving!
