The 2022 holiday season at High Point Theatre has announced the lineup of concerts and performances that will kick off this month and wrap up by the end of the year.
This year, the theater is turning in a big way to tried and true holiday entertainment favorites.
Things get going when Black Violin – an award-winning, classically-trained duo – comes to the stage with an act that includes “storytelling, whimsical string melodies and hard-hitting beats from the band’s Grammy-nominated ‘Take the Stairs and Give Thanks’ albums.”
Some proceeds of the show will help to benefit the Black Violin Foundation, Inc. That’s a non-profit group dedicated to empowering youth by giving them access to various music programs in their community.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, on Saturday, Nov. 26, Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter John Berry will be on his 26th annual Christmas concert tour, which includes favorite Christmas songs, interactive childhood stories and more.
The High Point Ballet will close out the season’s calendar with “The Nutcracker,” running from Friday, Dec. 16 to Sunday, Dec. 18.
According to promotional materials for the well-known holiday favorite, “The production proudly celebrates more than thirty years and has become a family holiday tradition after first opening in 1987 at the Edward C. Smith Civic Center in Lexington, N.C. Since then, ‘The Nutcracker’ has been performed throughout the Triad area and is now in its seventh full season back at High Point Theatre. There will also be a special children’s performance, ‘Land of the Sweets,’ presented in a one-act format which includes a parade of characters, photo opportunities and autograph cards beginning approximately one hour before the main performance.”
David Briggs, the director of the High Point Theatre, said he’s very excited about the shows that will entertain theater goers this season at the 900-seat performing arts auditorium that features continental-style seating.
Briggs called it “an amazing set of holiday performances” for everyone to enjoy and he added that the shows span “from the classical and hip hop sounds of Black Violin to the classic country hits and holiday concert as only John Berry can provide, to the beautiful production of ‘The Nutcracker’ from High Point Ballet.”
