|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 4:00 pm, repeating until December 15, 2019

Three traveling kings stop for the night at the humble home of a shepherd boy and his mother. As the precocious Amahl entertains the peculiar guests, he learns that true generosity of heart can be a miracle in itself. Since its Christmas Eve premiere on national TV in 1951, AMAHL AND THE NIGHT VISITORS has charmed children and adults alike. Full of humor, wonder, and enchanting melody, AMAHL is truly a Christmas classic for the whole family.

Holiday Bonus!

Young marrieds Camilla and David visit a local rescue shelter, hoping an adorable new puppy will help mend some of the cracks in their relationship.

This warm, humorous tale of a little family’s brush with unconditional love will touch your heart and set just the right tone for your holiday.
