December is a great time to catch a holiday performance in Cumberland Valley.
Each year Allenberry presents an original story (written just for Allenberry) filled with laughter, music and holiday cheer. Celebrate the season with Santa Claus, sticky buns, roaring fireplaces, caroling, music, family and friends. This year's show will run November 04, 2015 to December 20, 2015 and is titled There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays.
The state-of-the-art Luhrs Center at Shippensburg University hosts a variety of acts surrounding the holiday season. Top touring performers and old favorites have performed Christmas classics at the center. This year's festive performances include Celtic Woman "Home for Christmas": The Symphony Tour on December 3rd and Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis on December 9th.
The Central PA Youth Ballet is located in Carlisle and is a nationally and internationally recognized school of classical ballet. Around the holidays, the CPYB performs George Balanchine's The Nutcracker at the nearby Whitaker Center on December 12th and 13th and the Hershey Theatre on December 19th and 20th. They are the only pre-professional ballet school allowed to perform this version.
