Our 2016 Toronto Christmas Theatre Round-up

Wow! Is it that time of year again already? December has sneaked up on us much too quickly this year but it is, indeed, time for our annual round-up of Christmas themed shows in the GTA.

The Michael Hughes Christmas Special, performed by Garland-obsessed Hughes, is a nod to gay icon Judy Garland's own family Christmas TV special from 1963. Hughes performs his show at the Young Centre for the Arts. - December 3.

A Very Christerical Christmas Cabaret, an annual show by Chris Tsujiuchi, is back at Buddies In Bad Times Theatre. Be sure to wear your ugly Christmas sweater to this one! – December 3 and 4.

A Very Leila Christmas happens at the Storefront Theatre this year. Izad Etemadi brings us his lovable alter-ego, Leila, in her Christmas-themed show. - December 16 to 18.

It's A Wonderful Life, the cherished holiday film classic, is re-imagined as a 1940s live-radio broadcast by the Soulpepper ensemble. - December 9 to 24.

Eat, Buy, Repeat is Second City Toronto's boisterous comedy to help you celebrate the best (and worst) of the holiday season.- Now until January 6.

Together For The Holidays sees some of the biggest names in Canadian music gather to perform at Massey Hall. This concert features Sarah McLachlan, Johnny Reid, Holly Cole, and Jordan Smith. - December 19.

Sleeping Beauty: The Deliriously Dreamy Family Musical is Ross Petty Productions’ annual holiday show this year at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre. This is the first year in many that Petty steps away from playing the villain, giving that job to design expert Hilary Farr from HGTV's Love It Or List It. - Now until January 7. 

A Jann Arden Christmas features one of our favourite Canadian songstresses in a holiday-season extravaganza at Roy Thomson Hall with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Etobicoke School of the Arts chorus. - December 13 and 14.

Sharron & George's SUPERFUN Christmas Singalong! happens once again at Buddies In Bad Times. This talented duo are sure to put you in the mood for the Holidays with their fun, festive frivolity! – December 17.

A Christmas Carol has become a Toronto holiday tradition at Soulpepper Theatre. Follow Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by three ghosts who help him understand the importance of charity in the holiday season. – Now until December 24.

The Nutcracker, the gorgeous Christmas-themed ballet, is performed once again by the National Ballet of Canada at the Four Seasons Centre with choreography by James Kudelka. - December 10 to 31.

Happy Holidays and Make the Yuletide Gay!!!
