Crane River Theater is thrilled to reprise our widely popular holiday production for the community of Kearney and surrounding areas. Let It Snow features performances from more than two hundred performers of all ages. The goal is to bring together artists from all styles of music, dance and theater to present a production of holiday spirit for the whole family. Countless people have talked about an event like this for years, and Crane River Theater is excited to create such a wonderful tradition.
This year’s production will feature nine premier groups and four outstanding soloists performing jazz, acapella, instrumental, dance, choral and contemporary musical stylings. Among the groups performing are The OK Sisters, Formerly Three, The Heavenly Treble Makers, UNK Jazz Combo, Kearney School of Dance Competition Team, Dance Catz, Kearney High Chorale, Platte River Children’s Chorale and Platte River Singers. Crane River Theater is excited to incorporate live theatrical scenes from many of your favorite holiday stories into the show this year. Mary Henning, a well-known artist will narrate the production, and storyteller Chuck Peek will share cozy moments by the fireside with audiences. Santa Claus will even be making a special appearance before each of the performances, so kids are encouraged to come early so they can share their Christmas wishes with him. It will truly be a celebration for the whole family.
