Deck the Halls: Home for the HolidaysBy Caroline Kaiser and Sarah Durham
A brand new rendition of everything that makes the holidays in Sarasota special.
With all new songs and sketches, audiences should get ready to celebrate the holidays – Florida style – palm trees with decorations, swimming in the sea, sand snowmen, and more. Tis the season to deck the palms and join in on the fun at this interactive family show.
