Living Christmas Tree this weekend

December 2, 2010

Time is running out for area residents hoping to get tickets for the 32nd annual First United Methodist Church Living Christmas Tree, which will help kick the holiday season into high gear this weekend.

According to Program Coordinator Eddie Vandewalker, performances will begin with a formal dress rehearsal at 2 p.m. Saturday, which will be open to the public.

“It's basically the first chance the community can come and see the show, and see how hard the men and women participating in the Living Christmas Tree have been working,” Vandewalker said. “The dress rehearsal is all general seating, so there's no ticket necessary. It's geared more toward our seniors who don't like to drive at night.

“Later the same evening we'll hold the first actual performance at 8 p.m., and the last performance will be the following day, Sunday, also at 8 p.m. We have 130 singers this year, and they sound just amazing. I'm really looking forward to the performance.”
Vandewalker said he's excited with some of the new faces that will be taking part in the annual event.

“The varsity choir from Big Spring High School will be participating in this year's Living Christmas Tree, as will the junior varsity choir,” Vandewalker said. “They will be singing, as will several other groups. It's a little bit different than what we've done in the past and everyone seems really excited about the addition. I know I certainly am.”
