It is a beautiful performance put on by YOUTH- no professional dancers, dancers from many different schools from beyond Licking County. I love peeking in on the rehearsals and seeing the older dancers prepping the younger dancers. I love seeing how the cast and crew of all ages (parents, grandparents, dear friends) bond as a family as they work hard to bring this holiday tradition to life. Some tire of the music but I don't - I love it. I cherish my memory of seeing my sister dance in Altoona and am delighted she and her nieces share the experience.
Life on Newark-Granville Road includes many treks up the stairs and round trips downtown and it is all worth it. I hope you'll consider attending this year- tickets are available at The Midland Box Office- I recommend stopping in the box office- best way to pick your seat. And while you are there pop over to River Road Coffee and Palumbo's for a treat! You may also call or go-online: here is the link: http://www.midlandtheatre.org No doubt you'll know many dancers- keep an eye out for the signs in the yards like we have in our life on Newark-Granville Road.
