Annual “Visions of Christmas - A Musical Celebration” hits the stage in Orange Beach

Posted

ORANGE BEACH — “Visions of Christmas – A Musical Celebration” takes the stage in Orange Beach this weekend.

The variety show, presented by the Expect Excellence Music Department will be held Nov. 17-19 at the Orange Beach Performing Arts Center (P.A.C.), located at 23908 Canal Road. The P.A.C is located on the eastern portion of the Orange Beach High School campus.

There will be a full complement of holiday music with many Christmas standards and several special surprises that will put everyone in the Christmas spirit. There will also be appearances from a few special holiday characters mixed into the performance, according to Caleb Pittman, E.E. music director.

“Visions of Christmas” is a high energy variety show that has something for everyone.

“Rehearsals are going great,” Pittman said. “We are really challenging our group this year with some very tough music, and they are handling it like champs.”

This year's production has 30 vocalists and musicians and a lot of new faces in the show.

“We work on our shows a full year in advance and sometimes it still comes down to the wire,” he Pittman.

But, all the hours of planning and rehearsals are made worthwhile.

“Once everyone is getting in the holiday spirit. We love putting on awesome music shows, but beyond that, we hope to inspire and share encouragement to those who really need it,” Pittman said.

Admission to “Visions of Christmas” is free, but reservations are required, due to space and availability considerations. The performances Nov. 17-18 will be at 7 p.m., and there will be a matinee performance Saturday, Nov. 19 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are available online at orangebeachal.gov/events/performing-arts. The box office is open from 2 to 6 p.m. on weekdays at the back entrance of the P.A.C. Anyone with questions, can call the box office at (251) 923-0043 or email jjlangston@orangebeachal.gov.
