There will be two performances on Saturday, December 12th,  scheduled for 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. General admission tickets are available for $12 each and preferred seating tickets for $18 each. All ticket sales, as well as the proceeds from the sales of books and recordings, will help the Food Bank provide food to local families in need.
