LEWISTON–Following the success of last year’s premiere of Sights and Sounds of Christmas, the fundraising event returns “bigger and better than ever” to the Franco Center on Dec. 15 and 16 with three separate performances, according to show producer, Jake Hodgkin. Dozens of performers will sing, dance, act, and produce an energetic and vibrant festive Christmas show complete with an immersive light show. “The light show will produce a snow effect in several scenes and also a visual look at what it would be like to travel in Santa’s sleigh.” 

With an evening show at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 15, followed by a matinee show at 2 p.m. and evening show at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, the Franco Center’s beautiful Performance Hall stage will be the scene of holiday-themed performances, music, and a light show.  “This Christmas show is an event for the whole family, where memories can be made,” said Franco Center Board President Elaine Roop. 

“The matinee show will not have a light show or projection due to the fact that the Franco Center’s Performance Hall cannot be darkened during the day,” Hodgkin said. “The overall emphasis is to give the feeling of an old-fashioned homestyle Christmas. If you are looking to get in the holiday spirit, don’t miss this show.” 

Tickets for the Franco Center’s Sights & Sounds of Christmas Show range from $7 to $25. Tickets can be purchased online at BOX OFFICE TICKETS or by phone at 207-689-2000. Tickets can also be purchased in person at our box office between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
