Join us in the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion as Pinnacle Creative Arts presents Hope for the Holidays – A WWII Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 2:30 p.m.
Step back in time with us to Christmas Eve 1944… Somewhere overseas a bevy of Hollywood’s top talent are performing for our brave men fighting in World War II. As an audience participant, you will become one of those brave men, watching as hit songs like “Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy” and “Jingle Bells” are sung by the Andrews Sisters, and “Thanks for the Memories” is sung by Bob Hope, along with many others.
