Take A Bow Showcase will combine singing, dancing, music, theater and comedy for a Renaissance-style show called “The Spirit of Christmas” Dec. 4, 5 and 6.
Guests will dine on a four-course gourmet meal while a cast of more than 50 people perform at the Four Points Sheraton in Fairview Heights.
“It is not a passive event or concert of Christmas songs,” said Maryann Totsch Hopwood, artistic director for the community theater group. “It’s a full-scale interactive event for all ages.”
Music will range from traditional and contemporary carols to amusing novelty songs, accompanied by an orchestra.
