Magenta Rocks! Christmas Choir Concert

 A 90-minute family-friendly line-up of festive music featuring modern medleys, Christmas classics, and a visit with Santa at intermission.  

Magenta Theater’s Artistic Director, Jaynie Roberts, opted to not put on a Christmas mainstage show this year so that volunteers and actors could experience a month away from the theater!  But that sugar-plum idea didn’t make it through summer!  As soon as the July fundraiser concluded, Choir Director, Erin Knittle, started making lists (and checking them twice) of holiday and Christmas songs that could be performed at the newly hatched Magenta Rocks! Christmas event.  The event spans three days with 7:30pm performances on December 13 and 14, and a 2pm matinee on December 15.  Should ticket sales warrant, the option for adding an evening performance on December 15th is on the back burner.

The rock choir consists currently of 57 members, although Ms, Knittle’s goal is to swell that number to 100 within the year.  Jaynie Roberts, meanwhile, has asked on more than one occasion where those additional 43 members might be placed…as the choir already fills the stage at the downtown venue.   “Creative staging will be used!” responds Ms. Knittle, with a twinkle in her eye.

Some of the choir members are dressing as characters from past plays!  This should be a treat for patrons familiar with Magenta’s previous seasons.

Washington and Oregon businesses have generously donated items for the raffle that will take place during the event.  Prizes range from tickets to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Portland Center Stage, gift certificates for Urban Float, Utopia Spa, Vancouver Yoga, Alder Creek Kayak, Nonavo Pizza, Gray’s Restaurant, Bishops Barbershop and much more!  Fundraising Committee Co-chair, Lauren Scher, proclaims many Christmas stockings will have extra goodies in them this year!

Performances:  December 13 & 14 @ 7:30pm, December 15 @ 2:00pm.

Cost:  Tickets $12 in advance, $15 at the door if available
