The annual SD 62 PACE Christmas show is a family tradition on the West Shore with a colourful reputation for serving up holiday magic for all ages.

Keeping PACE With Christmas, presented by the SD 62 Musical Theatre, is a fast-paced musical revue featuring a collection of favourite Christmas classics and carols, as well as songs from popular holiday movies including Elf, Frozen, Polar Express and The Grinch, said Sandra Webster-Worthy, artistic musical director for the PACE Musical Theatre Academy.

“It’s an awesome show this year that’s guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser,” she added. “Bring your little ones and pose for photos with Buddy the Elf, Frosty, Olaf, the Grinch and Kermit.”

Almost 400 PACE Musical Theatre Academy students are taking part in a show aimed at pleasing all ages, Webster-Worthy added.
