Tickets are now on sale for Noel: A Holiday Musical, a season performance of the 2018-2019 Encore Series at Fort Hays State University, at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 28, in the Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center.
Noel is a new holiday family musical that tells the touching story of a young girl who is preparing for her starring role in a school Christmas performance when her mother disappears. Set in London, as the little girl tires to find her mother, she encounters a diverse group of homeless people who have lost their way in life.
One particular man, Nick, has lost his faith in humanity and in, the joy of Christmas. The audience learns that Nick is actually St. Nicholas, who has turned his back on his old “job.” He found that the world had forgotten the real meaning of Christmas so he walked away to help the people who really needed it. In their adventure to find Noel’s mom, together they learn to find hope in themselves, and in the world.
With a gorgeous score, Noel is a heart-warming poignant message of love that teaches us all to find the joy in our own lives and to rediscover the magic of Christmas.
This performance is sponsored by Cedar Lodge Dental Group.
