A Christmas Story, The Musical
From Nov. 18-23 get in the holiday spirit with the classic film coming to life on stage. A Christmas Story The Musical has all of the same leg-lamp laughter and triple-dog-dare-flagpole-licking humor put to music. It’s a great family-friendly activity that will bring you in from the cold.

The 44th Annual Downtown Appleton Christmas Parade
Watch all of the lights march down College Ave. and maybe even catch a glimpse of Santa, the parade can be chilly but it’s a Christmas tradition! While some people have staked out their favorite seats for years, we’re partial to the ones right outside of our beautiful building, right in the middle of the action.

Small Business Saturday
Cookies and refreshments will be available in our lobby while you are out shopping the great deals downtown on Small Business Saturday Nov. 29. Don’t forget you can also pick up gift certificates for your friends, family members or colleagues from our ticket office! Or pick up a present for yourself and get tickets for your favorite upcoming performance at the Center!
