Clement Clarke Moore’s classic Christmas poem will come to spectacular life from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve on the balconies and facades of Old Sacramento at K Street and Front.
The eighth annual Theatre of Lights is a free holiday program presented by the Old Sacramento Department of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership in cooperation with Downtown Sacramento Foundation (DSF), the City of Sacramento and Old Sacramento merchants.
The live-action retelling of Moore’s 1823 poem — “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” more popularly known as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” — promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Conceived and created by Stage Nine Exhibitions’ Troy Carlson, the Theatre of Lights will bring together some of California’s finest talents in the field of light and sound: Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, Associated Sound and Skywalker Sound, and Emmy-nominated voice actor Bill Farmer, the voice of Disney’s Goofy.
This year will also feature selected special themed Sundays. Theatre of Lights Sundays include Selfie Sunday, a night for local Instagramers to meet for festive photos after the show; a Holiday Cosplay day where costume enthusiasts can wear their best holiday themed costume for a costume contest at Sactown Sports bar; and finally Rogue Sunday, being held in honor of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, wear your best Star Wars costume to Laughs Unlimited for a costume show.
Visitors in Old Sacramento can view the production from the center of K Street as the story is performed from the balconies of the buildings around them.
