Spreading an extra measure of holiday cheer this year, the East Lincoln High School Chorus & Theatre Department in Denver, NC, is heading into December with great anticipation – and they’d love you to join them!
Their holiday happenings are perfect for all ages and an ideal way to spend some family time celebrating the magical season.
- East Lincoln On Stage presents the holiday classic “A Christmas Carol” – a masterful retelling of the heartwarming story of Ebenezer Scrooge – December 7th through December 10th, and December 14th through December 17th. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children K-12, and are available to purchase online at EastLincolnOnStage.org/tickets.
- Join East Lincoln On Stage for “Pictures with Santa” Friday, December 8th and December 15th from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., and Saturdays, December 9th and December 16th from 10:00 a.m. – noon, and 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Your $15 ticket provides a photo time slot and “Santa Time” for one child or one family to share their holiday wishes. (Additional children may be added.) You’ll receive digital copies of your adorable photo shoot, plus take home two 5×7 prints. Additional prints and print sizes will be available à la carte. While walk-ins are welcome, it’s best to secure a time for your family by purchasing in advance at EastLincolnOnStage.org/Santa.
- Delight in the East Lincoln On Stage “Sounds of the Seasons Concert” on Tuesday, December 12th at 6:00 p.m. at the East Lincoln Black Box Theater located at 6471 NC-73, in Denver, NC. Admission for this festive evening is free and offers the community a wonderful evening of music and celebration, while supporting the young musicians of East Lincoln High School.
“We currently have a total of 75 students in the program, with some participating in both choral music and theatre,” explains Director Greg Franklin, who has experience teaching all grade levels of music, both instrumental and choral, along with musical theatre. For those who would like to support and encourage this talented group, they always accept donations to help feed the cast and crew during long rehearsals that occur before performance week, and are also grateful to accept food and drink items for their concession stand, as well as monetary donations to help the program continue to grow.
“You can also visit EastLincolnOnStage.org/Donate and purchase much-needed items from our Amazon wishlist,” adds Greg. “But the biggest and most important way to support our program is to attend these student performances! Full houses not only help finance our creative work, but they also encourage and inspire the student performers.”
