Ann Arbor Christmas Shows

There are several great Ann Arbor Christmas Shows each December. There are several plays/musicals, concerts, and of course Nutcracker ballets.  Attending one of the Ann Arbor Holiday Shows is a great family tradition. Below is a list of all of the Ann Arbor Christmas Performances.

Ann Arbor Christmas Shows

Ann Arbor Holiday Performances range from single performance shows to shows that run through the whole season. There are also shows in Ann Arbor, Saline, Chelsea, Dexter, and more. As always, if I missed any performances, let me know in the comments or on Facebook.

If you’re looking for a Nutcracker ballet, they are included below. They are also available in our Nutcracker ballet listings.

    Of course you could take the kids to THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR at the Power Center, December 7th thru 10th. Slapstick comedy, chases through the audience, skeletons in the closet, song and dance!

    Shakespeare’s accessible and only farce, plenty of visual humor for the kids not to mention an easily understood text. Get kids involved and enjoying live theatre and Shakespeare at an early age – much better than video games, movies, electronic devices, etc.
