Tis the holiday season, theatregoers, for holiday shows. All but one show opening this weekend, and all but two shows overall, are holiday or Christmas themed. Everything from the classics to new traditions are now taking place. Check them out below.
For those not into the holiday shows, Little Colonel Playhouse (Critic’s Choice) and Actors Theatre (Tribes) have shows going on this weekend. Check those out below as well.
To complete what will no doubt be a busy weekend in the Louisville theatre scene, check out no less than three auditions going on this weekend.
