COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The Lindsey Wilson
College community will give area residents several opportunities to
get into the Christmas spirit this year.
The college will sponsor four public events from Dec. 1-8 that
celebrate the Christmas season: a community concert, holiday
cabaret, band concert and Christmas carnival.
The Christmas celebration gets underway Dec. 1-2, with
the "Holiday Cabaret," which will be
performed by the LWC Theatre Program. A "Holiday Cabaret" will be
presented at 7 p.m. CT Dec. 1-2 at V.P. Henry
Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson St.
Billed as an evening of song, dance and holiday cheer, the
"Holiday Cabaret" will be a bit like a TV special on stage,
according to LWC Assistant Professor of Theatre
The revue will include classic and modern Christmas songs,
readings, monologues and other Christmas-inspired performances.
"We presented the "Holiday Cabaret" to the community last year,
and it was a lot of fun," Brock said. "We look forward to bringing
back this joyful evening of Christmas tradition and
Admission to the "Holiday Cabaret" is a nonperishable food item,
which will be donated to the Adair County Food Pantry.
