BIDDEFORD — Join City Theater this Holiday season for our “2020 Home For The Holidays Concert.” This virtual performance will stream on the theater’s YouTube channel from Dec. 18 to Dec. 27. Some favorite City Theater performers will be singing holiday favorites along with excerpts from its past Christmas productions. “This concert promises to be the perfect show to gather the family around to enjoy being ‘Home For The Holidays,’” according to a City Theater press release.

City Theater Artistic Director Linda Sturdivant and Music Director Patrick Martin have teamed up again and put together a concert “that will make you feel like you have stepped back in time to an old fashion TV Christmas Special complete with a crackling fire and carols around the Christmas Tree,” according to the release.

This concert has something for everyone. “‘We Need A Little Christmas,’ ‘Let It Snow, and many other seasonal favorites will delight everyone in your family,” according to the release. “An appearance by the storybook princesses from Brie’s Best Guest will delight the younger members of the audience.” There will also be selections from past City Theater Christmas productions including: “A Christmas Carol: the musical” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” The concert will conclude with traditional Christmas selections: “Gesu Bambino” sung by sopranos Mary Jordan Johnston Letellier and Sara Sturdivant and “O’Holy Night” sung by three tenors, Brian McAloon, Miles Obrey and Schuyler White.
