The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul is hoping to keep traditions alive during the COVID-19 pandemic by hosting three virtual performances for the holidays.
“Attending a holiday musical or concert at the Ordway is a tradition for so many families. While our theater remains closed this holiday season, we are delivering virtual holiday productions for families of all ages to watch together," said Dayna Martinez, Senior Programming Director at the Ordway. "We hope we can keep some of that family theater tradition alive through virtual events."
The first of the three shows will be “A (Virtual) Christmas with The Griswolds: An Evening with Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo,” a conversation with the stars of the beloved movie “Christmas Vacation,” streaming live at 7 p.m. on Nov. 28.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday here. They're $25.
Then there's “The Hip Hop Nutcracker” with guest star Kurtis Blow, a contemporary dance spectacle set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music. The event will stream at 7 p.m. on Nov. 27.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Oct. 29 here. They're $20.
The final virtual holiday performance will be “A Virtually Celtic Christmas,” a concert featuring traditional carols, ancient Gaelic hymns, and classic carols with Irish tenor Michael Londra at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 18.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Oct. 29 here. They're $25.
