Theatre to present holiday musical

DOVER-FOXCROFT — The holiday show “Kris Kringle The Musical” will open at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9 at the Center Theatre. Direct from New York City’s theater district comes this all-new, original holiday musical comedy. “Kris Kringle The Musical” made its New York City debut in November,2017 at The Town Hall and featured an all-star Broadway cast. It is a timeless story of hope, forgiveness and finding a family in the most unlikely of places. This magical holiday musical will resonate with audiences of all ages.

The Slightly Off-Center Players community theater group production will run for two weekends from Dec. 9 through Dec. 17, just in time to get people in the holiday spirit.

“We’ve traditionally done a holiday show in December,” said Patrick Myers, the Center Theatre’s executive director. “It’s a time when families enjoy coming out together to share a fun holiday experience. Our cast of local actors has been working hard since October and we’re all looking forward to seeing it come to life.”
