Old Sacramento’s Theatre of Lights is a unique state-of-the-art live staging of the classic ’Twas The Night Before Christmas. The show blends a symphony of lights, sounds and visual effects which will take the audience back to a time when the beloved poem ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas was first introduced in Sacramento in 1857 in The Sacramento Bee. The beloved poem comes to life on the balconies and rooftops of Old Sacramento’s historic buildings on K Street between Front and 2nd Street.
Opening night is, as always, the night before Thanksgiving. This years Theatre of Lights season begins with the lighting of the City Christmas Tree on Nov. 21. Festivities begin at 5:30 pm, followed by the official tree lighting at 6:30 pm and first Theatre of Lights performance of the season begins immediately after the tree lighting.
On New Year’s Eve Theatre of Lights will be a key component of the festivities leading up to the fireworks spectacular and shows will run later in the evening at 7 pm and 8:30 pm.
The show will run Thursday – Sunday through New Year’s Eve with a special holiday show on Christmas Eve. There will be no show on Thanksgiving. For more details on Old Sacramento’s holiday festivities, visit oldsacramento.com.
