Theater Shows that will put you in the Holiday Mood

The wind has started to shift, the temperatures have begun to drop and the leaves are all but gone from the trees. That can only mean one thing – that the holidays are right around the corner! Are you looking for something to put you in the spirit of the season? Then look no further than the lights and sounds of the theaters in your area. Or, better yet, take a trip to New York City to take in all the holiday festivities while you catch a show. No matter whether you find a theater in your region or can travel this season to see a Broadway show, here are a few fan favorites that will get you in the holiday mood.


  • Elf – We all know that the best way to way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. If you are familiar with the movie Elf you will love the 2010 Broadway adaptation that brings a smile to the audience’s faces and puts everyone in a festive mood!
  • A Christmas Carol – For those of you looking for a more traditional Christmas show, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol may do just the trick to get you in the mood.
  • White Christmas – A little singing and dancing, and the magic of old Hollywood should get your toes tapping and heart melting this holiday season. This show usually makes its tour around the holidays, so watch for your local or regional theaters to start offering tickets soon.
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss – Generations of children have grown up on Dr. Seuss and now his musical can delight audiences of all ages with the dastardly Grinch on his mission to ruin Christmas, only to learn that his heart can grow and love.
  • The Nutcracker Suite – Escape for the night to a land of dance and sugarplum fairies as you enjoy the Nutcracker Ballet this holiday season. Even children will love the dancing and the larger-than-life characters and Christmas Tree.
