Come to the Christmas City Follies!

Sure, we’ve all seen a performance of  “A Christmas Carol” and we’ve all seen “It’s a Wonderful Life” on TV and you bet someone in your house still owns a copy of “Jon Denver and The Muppets: A Christmas Together.” But, if you haven’t seen Touchstone Theatre’s “Christmas City Follies,” you haven’t seen it all.

The high-spirited, homegrown, vaudevillian variety show celebrates the Christmas season in the Christmas City in a way you probably haven’t seen before. Pirates have made an appearance, as have weird robot aliens, and a few elves that maybe have drank a few too many cups of eggnog. It’s a fun Christmas party and you and yours are more than welcome to come join in on the fun!

1.5 Million at Musikfest 2014

It may have been due to Keith Urban’s good looks and energetic performance. Maybe it was Aw Shucks great tasting corn on the cob. Maybe it was the Polynesian dance performances by Polynesian Dance Productions. Either way, Musikfest attracted a near-record crowd of 1.15 million for 2014, according to a news release.

“This year Mother Nature truly shined on us, as we had the best weather in many years,” says ArtsQuest President Jeff Parks. “The comfortable evenings and sunny skies on many days, coupled with the diverse festival lineup, led to excellent crowds on a number of days.  While the late cancellation at the Sands Steel Stage on Aug. 1 will have a slight impact on the overall financial numbers, it looks like revenues from the festival will definitely be up over 2013, helping to provide additional funding to support our free arts and cultural programming for the community throughout the year.”

Keith Urban packed the house

Keith Urban couldn’t have been more charming, charismatic, and entertaining during the final Sands Steel Stage performance at Muskiest 2014.

His energetic and perfect-for-summer music was almost overshadowed by the way in which he interacted with the audience, going as far as to bring fans onstage and go through the crowd to play at directly for those in the bleacher seats (something we’re pretty sure is a Sands Steel Stage first.)
