The Christmas Show is the centerpiece of the St. George Theatre’s season each year, truly setting the tone for the holiday season. Although the show could not be presented on the theatre stage this year, we have instead put together an amazing virtual production comprising footage from past Christmas Shows along with newly-filmed numbers that will be sure to put you in the Christmas spirit! The 2020 Christmas Show will stream live for FREE on Sunday, December 6 at 7PM EST on the theatre’s official Facebook, YouTube, and at ChristmasShow.StGeorgeTheatre.com. To RSVP, click here.
The 2020 Christmas Show is the 17th annual and first-ever virtual version of the Staten Island tradition. Conceived by the late Mrs. Rosemary in 2004, the Christmas Show is a high energy, rhinestone-studded series of songs and dances, centering around a grandmother reading a Christmas story to her grandchildren about the wonderful happenings that make the holiday season special. Starting off in grandmother’s house, the show takes the audience on a magical journey through numerous scenes and scenarios from the North Pole to Times Square, Clove Lake Park to The Rainbow Room, culminating in a nativity sequence telling the story of the First Christmas.
This year’s show will feature footage from the 2018 and 2019 productions, plus new scenes starring Paul Anka with Emmanuel, Bobby Wilson, Vinnie Medugno, Marcus Simeone and his group Clearly Now, a special tribute to our military presented by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a brand-new socially-distanced finale starring dozens of the show’s cast members, and so much more!
Each year, the Christmas Show historically serves as a fundraiser for the St. George Theatre Restoration, Inc. the non-profit organization which operates the historic venue. This year’s presentation will be offered for free online, with a call to the community asking for donations to safeguard its future and continue with their mission.
The 2020 Christmas Show is sponsored by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, ShopRite, and Gateway Arms Realty, and produced by Fuzz on the Lens Productions. Special thanks to Joel Bibula and Staten Island Community Television for their archival footage, musical director Michael Morreale and the St. George Theatre Orchestra, choral director Ed Morand, and the all-volunteer cast of nearly 150 performers who have contributed to this year’s production.
