A family friendly evening featuring Motown-influenced Christmas carols takes place in December at the Marysville Opera House.
The Holiday Variety Show takes place at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 17, at the Marysville Opera House. Tickets cost $18 and can be purchased from the city of Marysville’s Parks, Culture and Recreation website.
The show features the music of the Jewel Tones, who are a trio of women who will sing about a dozen holiday songs, said Chris Taylor, cultural arts supervisor for the city of Marysville. Holiday Harmony Carolers are scheduled to perform. Radio host Stitch Mitchell will host the variety show. Taylor said there isn’t any background music and spectators will listen to carols.
During the intermission, adults will read aloud letters to Santa and holiday stories children have written.
Marysville held the Variety Show last in 2019. The pandemic prompted cancellation of the 2020 show.
Registration to Marysville’s Holiday Variety Show can be made at the city’s Parks, Art and Recreation website at marysvillewa.gov/147/Parks-Culture-Recreation. Registration deadline is Dec. 16. Tickets can be purchased the day of the show if room is available.
