As the holiday season sets in and colder weather is around the corner, we have some great alternatives to staying inside with a cup of cocoa (though let’s be honest, we’re all about that, too). Check out some exciting shows just around the corner in Indianapolis this season!
The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir will present four performances of the annual Festival of Carols December 7 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in downtown Indianapolis, and December 20-21 at the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. The 200-voice choir brings the audience timeless holiday songs highlighting the magic of the season. Following sell-out runs in both 2012 and 2013, Festival of Carols continues to be a tradition in Indianapolis each holiday season. Grab tickets before they’re gone at indychoir.org. (And, grab your copy of their latest Christmas CD – The Best of Festival of Carols, Vol. 1 is available at indychoir.org or on iTunes!)
Based off the popular holiday comedy film, ELF: The Broadway Musical is the must-see show about Buddy the Elf, an orphan child who mistakenly climbs into Santa’s bag and is transported to the North Pole. After growing up and realizing that he is actually not an elf, Buddy travels to New York to find his true identity while helping others to remember the true meaning of Christmas. A show for the whole family, ELF will be at the Murat Theatre at Old National Centre December 16-20. For tickets and more information, visit
