Deck The HallsBy Sarah Durham and Caroline Saldivar
Musical arrangements by Jim Prosser
A brand-new rendition of everything that makes Christmas and Hanukkah 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. An annual Sarasota holiday tradition, Deck the Halls invites families to get into the holiday spirit and join in on the fun at this interactive family show.
