The holidays are merrier now that the Christmas Canteen returns to the Aurora theatre Nov. 25 to Dec. 3. This original revue is a holiday extravaganza featuring festive songs, show-stopping dance numbers, comic sketches, and an all-star cast. Now in its 27th year, the festive variety show promises new surprises as the performance lineup changes yearly.

Christmas Canteen is synonymous with Aurora Theatre,” said Co-Founder and Producing Artistic Director Ann-Carol Pence. “Over our 27 years, we have changed, the region has changed, yet Canteen has been a joyful, consistent part of our journey. It is my way of saying thank you for allowing Aurora to be a pivotal part of this wonderful community.  Personally, it’s my time to hug a whole lot of special people. Christmas can’t come soon enough for me.”
