Premium Seating and Meet & Greet
From Broadway to Pleasant Bay, join John Riddle (Phantom of the Opera, Frozen) and Alysha Umphress (On The Town, American Idiot) for an intimate evening of music and other surprises as they romp through the nostalgia of the holiday season. Spanning the musical stylings of Dolly Parton, Cher, and Frosty (the Snowman), you’ll be cozier than a chestnut roasting on an open fire. They are joined by pianist Dan Micciche, conductor of the hit Broadway musical Wicked.
