The holiday season is here, and there’s no better way to embrace the Christmas spirit than taking in a show at one of Corpus Christi’s live theatre venues! Our acting scene is top-notch with an array of talented and passionate performers who will dazzle you while bringing your favorite holiday tale to life. We hope to see you there!

Harbor Playhouse

First on your list should be the Harbor Playhouse! It stages an amazing Broadway version of A Christmas Carol directed by Laurel Brashears with musical influence from award-winning composer Alan Menken. Talk about an all-star cast! This timeless classic follows Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve while he encounters the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, which leads him to ultimately discover the true spirit of Christmas. The show is family-friendly and will have you walking out with Christmas joy!

Aurora Arts Theatre

Aurora Arts Theatre presents a heartwarming new holiday classic GLITZ: The Little Miss Christmas Pageant Musical! The play gives a behind-the-scenes look at the backstabbing mothers and fiercely competitive daughters in the ‘Little Miss Christmas Pageant,’ an annual competition where ten girls (and their outrageous stage moms) compete for the coveted Christmas crown. Sequins, shiny shoes, and a can of hairspray aren’t all it takes to win this battle. These diva daughters and pushy moms are armed with sheer grit and a thirst for victory. However, when the value of truth, honesty, and love is learned, Christmas spirit becomes the true winner. Multiple performances happen every weekend!

You can find it here: 5635 Everhart Road, Corpus Christi, TX 78411

Selena Auditorium at American Bank Center

Christmas isn’t Christmas without the famous ballet, The Nutcracker! Many families make it an annual tradition to see this classic story of a young girl's journey to a magical land on Christmas Eve with a Mouse King, toy soldiers and a handsome prince. The high-quality production performed by award-winning dancers and ballerinas will sweep you off your feet! The show includes a live orchestra and combines professional dancers with student-dancers to create a beautiful rendition.
