The Radio City Rockettes kick into town Nov. 11-28 for 38 performances of the "Radio City Christmas Spectacular" at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.
"Southwest Florida will enjoy this unprecedented chance to celebrate the holiday season with the incomparable Rockettes right here in their own backyard,” Barbara B. Mann General Manager Scott Saxon said. “Wooden soldiers, teddy bears, Santa and a Living Nativity - it will be simply ... spectacular!”
Famed dance numbers featured in this production include “The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” and “The Living Nativity,” both of which have been performed in The Christmas Spectacular since it debuted in 1933. In addition to the traditional favorites, the stage will come alive with newer scenes including sizzling Rockette tap number “The 12 Days of Christmas ” and high-kicking “Christmas in New York.”
Tickets go on sale Friday at 8 a.m. at the Barbara B. Mann box office. Ticket sales are in-person only at the box office for two hours. Phone and web sales start at 10 a.m.
Members of the Rockettes will be at the box office at 7:30 a.m. Performers will speak with ticket buyers, pose for photos with the first 100 people in line and join with the public to create Fort Myers' longest Kickline.
