Mountain City’s historic Heritage Hall Theatre is gearing up for a set of holiday season performances by nationally recognized artists that will allow you to experience art at new heights this year in the mountains of east Tennessee.
First up, check out High Country’s favorite duo, The Krüger Brothers, on Saturday, Nov. 12. Jens Krüger (banjo and vocals), Uwe Krüger (guitar and lead vocals) and Joel Landsberg (bass and vocals) come together to makeup this popular group with classical roots and a vastly impressive repertoire that spans an array of genres. They personify the spirit of exploration and innovation that forms the core of the American musical tradition. Their original music is crafted around their discerning taste, and the result is unpretentious, cultivated, and delightfully fresh. They are nationally known and exceedingly popular! The show will begin at 7 p.m. and tickets are on sale now — $20 in advance, $23 at the door and $10 for youth. This show is sponsored by Danny Herman Trucking, Family Prescription Center and The Final Touch.
One week later, The Barter Players will take the stage to perform “Frosty,” a Catherine Bush adaptation sponsored by the JC Community Foundation. In the story, a young orphan named Billy discovers magic in a stolen hat when he places it on a snowman’s head and that snowman comes to life — but can Frosty the snowman help Billy find his real family in time for Christmas? Join Billy and Frosty as they embark on a New York City adventure filled with thrills and chills and the discovery that the real magic of Christmas is love. The one-act show will run for approximately 40 minutes. The show will begin at 7 p.m. and all seats are just $5. You can’t beat that!
The box office is open from noon to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and is located at 126 College St. in Mountain City. For tickets and more information,or call 423-727-7444 or visit heritagehalltheatre.com.
