A Christmas Story: The Musical | The Long Center for the Performing Arts

The Long Center has Your Escape from the Holiday Hubbub, Musical Style!

Fall is here—at least we think that’s what this sometimes-cold-sometimes-hot weather we’re experiencing right now is. And these 50 degree mornings have us thinking about the next two months of holidays, family, and the tons of festive (and sometimes overwhelming) engagements that come with this time of year.

But boy, do we have some answers for you. This Season of Cheer we’ve got morning, afternoon and evening opportunities for escape from the buzz and hubbub of November & December. Grab a meal with the entire crew, stroll around our grounds and candy cane columns (of course they’re coming back this year!), and take in a show together. Plus, we’ve got Family 4-Packs available (that’s buy 3 get 1 FREE) and remember, you can always get 10% off with a group of 10 or more!

Here’s our 2017 Season of Cheer programming, and the two (and a half) reasons you should be looking forward to family during the holidays. Pencil these in early and take a load off!

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The MusicalThe beloved TV classic soars off the screen and onto the stage in this lauded adaptation. Come see all of your favorite characters from the special including Santa and Ms. Claus, Hermey the Elf, the Abominable Snow Monster, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius and, of course, Rudolph brought to life!

Santa on the TerraceJoin us on the City Terrace again this year and take some time out of the busiest holiday of the year to celebrate the season. Bring the kids fr a FREE photo with Santa overlooking the best view in Austin! Enjoy some holiday treats with all sorts of fun entertainment. Activities will be planned for the whole family, so bring everyone. And, in true Black Friday fashion, we’ll be offering some stellar deals! And then you can enjoy Rudolph onstage after.

A Christmas Story: The MusicalYou know this story well–after a smash-hit Broadway run garnering three Tony(R) Award nominations including Best Musical, This Christmas classic returns for another year. Based on the perennial holiday movie favorite, the story takes place in 1940s Indiana, where a bespectacled boy named Ralphie wants only one thing for Christmas: an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle! And did we mention that this is from the same Oscar-winning & Tony-winning songwriting duo from La La Land and Dear Evan Hansen?

The months have started to move quickly—see you back here for Season of Cheer!
