I am so excited for this! We have our tickets for opening night, and we just finished reading the book to our kiddos last night. It is one of my favorite Christmas stories of all time. (I did okay reading the first three and a half chapters out loud, but couldn’t finish it out. My husband was a brave soul and finished reading the last two and a half chapters. I didn’t even dare try!)
Based on the best selling novel by Richard Paul Evans, the Empress Theatre is proud to bring the world premiere of the musical “The Christmas Box.” The Evans family moves into a new town and home, boarding with a mysterious older woman who seems to bring joy and positive light everywhere she goes. But the secret of the Christmas Box in the attic keeps calling to the family. Who is this mysterious woman and what happened in her past? Filled with brand new, heart-felt holiday tunes and a deeply felt Christmas message about the importance of family, this is the one yuletide event you and your family cannot miss!
The play runs November 30 to December 22.
Tickets can be purchased on the Empress Theatre website, or at their box office. They are located at 9104 West 2700 South in Magna, UT 84044. For additional information, you can reach them at (801) 347-7373.
