Your holiday celebrations begin at Fort Lewis College! We have a fantastic schedule of holiday-themed offerings for the whole family.
As is now tradition at the Community Concert Hall, “Nutcracker,” performed by the highly-acclaimed State Street Ballet of Santa Barbara, will usher in the holidays with two matinee and two evening performances.
Artistic Director Rodney Gustafson holds true to the original classical ballet in this Tchaikovsky masterpiece, creating a traditional “Nutcracker” set in Victorian times and suited for all ages.
The ballet will be accompanied by the San Juan Symphony. “The Nutcracker” runs through this weekend.
On Dec. 14, Durango’s much-beloved cowboy crooners come off the Bar D and return to the Community Concert Hall stage for their traditional cowboy Christmas show. Founded by Cy Scarborough in 1969, the Bar D Wranglers offer their own unique style of Western music, cowboy poetry and humor.
The Christmas Jubilee is a warm-hearted and fun-filled show that inspires the entire family to remember the true meaning of the holidays.
You’ll also want to get tickets for Dec. 16’s Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Scotty Morris and the boys return to Durango by popular demand to reprise the “Wild and Swingin’ Holiday Party,” a “live” and continually updated version of their album, “Everything You Want for Christmas.” The dance floor will be open.
Purchase tickets for Concert Hall, Theatre Department and Music Department performances at the Durango Welcome Center, 802 Main Ave.; at www.durangoconcerts.com; or call 247-7657.
