Larry, Carlos, & Mo
The Fox Theatre is giving Atlantans an early gift this year with the 8th annual FREE holiday event Larry, Carols & Mo on Monday, December 9th. Guests will enjoy a Christmas carol sing-a-long with the famous “Mighty Mo” organ, led by organist in residence Larry Douglas Embury. The Gwinnett Young Singers and Variety Stars of Tomorrow will also be spreading holiday cheer through their stage performances, while 11Alive’s Melissa Long plays emcee for the evening’s festivities. Following the sing-a-long and performances, the holiday classic “A Christmas Story” will be shown, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
But, wait, there’s more…the Fox Theatre will be making it snow from the Peachtree Street marquee, while photos with Santa and hot apple cider are available for purchase. So, bring the whole family and enjoy a night of jolliness and good cheer.
Memory-making Holiday Tours
Ever wanted to go behind the scenes of the amazing Nutcracker production? Well, here is your chance. The Fox Theatre will host magical holiday tours prior to performances of Belk Presents Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker. The festive holiday tours will feature an exclusive meet and greet with cast members from Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker, including master illusionist (and America’s Got Talent finalist) Drew Thomas, hot cocoa, complimentary family photos with a life-sized nutcracker and, of course, a tour of the fabulous Fox Theatre.
“This is always a very special time for the Fox Theatre since our doors first opened on December 25th, 1929,” says Molly Fortune, Director of Restoration and Operations for the Fox Theatre. “Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker creates the perfect setting for us to share that special memory with our patrons and get in the holiday spirit.”
The actual tour will be 30 minutes long, and will include the famous Mighty Mo’, the largest working Mollër theatre organ in the world, the starry-skied auditorium and the many holiday decorations throughout the fabulous Fox Theatre. Following the tours, guests will receive a special merchandise voucher for Fox Theatre commemorative items and decadent chocolate wafers provided by The Melting Pot in Midtown. Tickets are open to the general public and do not require a ticket purchase to Nutcracker.
