“A Sedalia Christmas” Celebrates Local Holiday Traditions

Christmas Tree

The holidays are full of magic and excitement.  Everybody in our area is thinking of what their plans might be or which events to attend to make this season special.  One way you can do that is with A Sedalia Christmas. 

The production is written and directed by local historian, Becky Imhauser.  Performances will be at the Liberty Center, 111 West 5th Street on Thursday, Dec. 5; Friday, Dec. 6; and Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7 will also have a 2 p.m. matinee.  Tickets are $12 each and can be purchased at the Liberty Center or by calling (660) 827-3228.

The folks at the Liberty Center will be celebrating Christmas with a distinct Sedalia style and flair.  This isn’t just a regular boring old pageant, though.  It’s a multi-media musical that celebrates Sedalia’s holiday traditions through favorite Christmas and patriotic songs, choreographed dance numbers and historic photos and film. Local actors and actresses portray historic Sedalians who have shaped our community, beginning with the 1860s.  It’s a great way to get some history and context into our local favorite stories.

The production recreates historic events including Depression-era “arrests” and a 1950s men’s style show that defies description, both to benefit charities. The show also portrays bittersweet Christmases during World War I, the Depression, World War II and the Korean War. This year’s production will take place on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, paying special tribute to World War II.

Local author Becky Imhauser wrote the script for “A Sedalia Christmas,” based on her book series about downtown Sedalia. Darrin Hartman will be the musical director and accompanist. The production premiered at the Liberty Center in 2008 as a fundraiser for the Liberty Center Association of the Arts. All proceeds continue to benefit the Liberty Center.

Make sure you get your tickets and bring the whole family to see this amazing production.  Celebrate your own traditions and join in to some amazing festivities here on the local level.

Celebratingly yours,
