Theatre Bristol celebrates Christmas this year by bringing its holiday show to its State Street storefront windows during the month of December. This stage right at the street features Christmas Scenes based on traditional stories of Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the elves. With a bit of improv and holiday spirit, Santa’s world comes to life in five walkable scenes of “Santa, Working from Home too,” “The North Pole,” “ ‘A Christmas Carol’ On the Air,” “Elves at Work… Sort of,” and “Presents Under the Tree.”
In the windows, Santa and Mrs. Claus are busy at work, checking lists, mapping the reindeer journey, responding to letters, and reviewing the elves’ toy-making. Sometimes, though, it’s time to take a break and make some cookies, decorate the tree, or take a nap. Visiting children may catch a glimpse of a wink or a smile from Santa. The elves make toys and wrap gifts to Christmas music all around. There are surprises too, every visit is a new experience.
While we cannot present our usual holiday production because of COVID, we are pleased to bring this Christmas production to this new “stage;” offer some joy; and even support downtown Bristol businesses and restaurants with a special attraction. Christmas Scenes gives our creative team and actors a safe opportunity to share their craft and we hope it keeps Theatre Bristol in everyone’s hearts during this time.
The activity is free of charge, and the Santa schedule and updates are available on Theatre Bristol’s Facebook page and at www.TheatreBristol.org. Donations to support the performing arts can be made at TheatreBristol.org/donate.
