“Everybody always has a ton of fun with this event,” said Patrick Newell, WNCC choral activities director. “Students have been looking forward to singing Christmas music since August, and we’ve typically drawn good crowds. ‘A Very Valley Christmas’ is a great kick-start into the holiday season.”
This year, patrons will be treated to holiday favorites such as “Winter Wonderland,” “White Christmas,” “Once Upon a December,” from the animated film “Anastasia,” and “Holiday Road” performed by instrumental groups Fire in the Pan Swingers and Western Nebraska Winds, and the vocal music groups Collegiate Chorale and Varsity Vocalise. As always, anyone can join the performers on stage to sing the “Hallelujah Chorus.”
Additionally, members of the Theatre Arts program will perform a 10-minute comedy “‘Twas the Fight Before Christmas,” directed by WNCC student Stephanie Wieand. The play features a family on Christmas Eve who all have different ideas how the evening should be spent.
