Santa is Coming to Town with a 16-Piece Band
December 21-23 Bend’s family-friendly holiday tradition returns during the Tower Theatre Foundation’s presentation of A Swingin’ Tower Christmas. This feel-good show features special guest Heather Salvesen, DVA Advertising’s Gary Fulkerson, Shantae Knorr (CATS), Kimmie Neff (Rock of Ages, A Chorus Line), Mr. Claus and Channel 21’s Bob Shaw singing Bing Crosby’s Mele Kalikimaka – complete with hula dancers! PLUS, acclaimed actor and storyteller, Alastair Jacques, will do a special re-telling of Twas the Night Before Christmas.
A Swingin’ Tower Christmas is hosted by Mollie Tennant (CATS, Spamalot) and features the Tower Big Band led by trumpeter Jim Tennant. “We all have met so many people throughout this year that have shared with us how much they enjoyed last year’s swinging big band Christmas show, how it put them into the holiday spirit and how much they are looking forward to it this year,” says Mollie. “We are super excited to be back at the Tower this holiday season!” Come enjoy songs that’ll make you boogie woogie with Santa Claus, run run with Rudolf and leave you dreaming of a white Christmas.
The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to be the leading performing arts organization, providing cultural and education programs that make an essential contribution to Central Oregon’s lifestyle and strengthen the community.
