Cocoa and Carols offers holiday fun
The York College Celebration Singers will perform their annual Cocoa and Carols program December 6 through 9. This family-friendly production will feature secular and sacred Christmas music, with choreography and skits.
Performances of the high energy show will be held in Gurganus Hall. The box office is now open. Admission is $5 and includes cocoa and cookies.
Program director Amy Fraser, assistant professor of music, encourages would-be attendees to reserve a ticket soon, as the seating is limited to 100 seats per performance. Fraser notes that all performances usually sell-out.
The show will feature 16 talented students, performing a variety of solo and ensemble numbers, including beloved Christmas favorites from “O, Holy Night” to “Frosty the Snowman.”
The theme of the show this year is “Forever Christmas.” Fraser says that it will incorporate a wide variety of musical styles, from hymns to pop numbers.
Cast members include Maegan Detlefs, Samantha Dixon, Laurel Simpson, Rebecca Agler, Brianna Bailey, Angelene Gray, Soren Tobey, Caroline Seilstad, Parker Seilstad, Patrick Clark, Kyle Svehla, Caleb Clark, Andrew Leonard, Matthew Gardner, Ryne Smith, and Cameron Holmes. In addition to performing, Detlefs is the assistant director and Dixon is the choreographer. Simpson is the set designer.
Performances on December 6, 7, and 8 will be at 7:30 p.m. with the house opening at 7. Sunday, December 9, the performance will be at 2 p.m. and the house will open at 1:30.
