Christmas Play & Christmas Display

Last year’s popular Christmas play, NICHOLAS: The Origin of Father Christmas, returns this season with a new scene and additional singing! This original holiday play by Jeremy Stanbary met with many sold-out audiences and an extended run during the world premiere last December.

New This Season!

Your ticket purchase includes access to our 4,000 SF walk-through Christmas display, featuring our growing St. Nicholas collection, Christmas village collection, Nativity collection, and Snowman collection along with an abundance of festive lights, and much more! Arrive early for the best viewing. The Christmas display will be open up to 60-minutes before showtime, as well as during intermission and up to 30-minutes after the show.

Critical Acclaim

[Nicholas] is a well-honed, powerfully presented play that draws us to the beliefs and behaviors that lie at the core of the frenzied holiday season we know today. It is both stirring and entertaining–the latter attributable to excellent staging, solid performances, bits of eye-winking contemporary references that sprinkle humor throughout, and beautiful music…

Christmas Concert

Please note the date change from our season brochure.

Join us Tuesday, December 12, for the 9th Annual Luke Spehar & Friends Christmas Concert, hosted for the 4th straight year at Open Window Theatre! Featuring both originals as well as Christmas classics, combined with Luke’s knack for hilarious and heartfelt storytelling, this festive concert delights audiences of all ages in the joy and wonder of the season. Approximate runtime: 80 minutes

Both Standard and VIP tickets available. The VIP tickets include complimentary wine and chocolates in our VIP Lounge in addition to a meet & greet with Luke prior to the concert.

Like many a church, Open Window is a refuge from the world (and standard entertainment), while not abandoning discussions of the hard issues that get dealt with in the world…
