The Magical Holiday Tradition Continues in Old Sacramento with 6th Annual Theatre of Lights

Posted: 11/20/2014

SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Known as a magical, electrifying and family-friendly holiday tradition in Old Sacramento, the ever-popular and free Theatre of Lights performances return on Wednesday evening, November 26th, following an official tree-lighting ceremony that begins at 6 p.m. and is open to the public. The 2014 Theatre of Lights is proudly sponsored by Bank of America and presented by the Old Sacramento Business Association (OSBA) in cooperation with Downtown Sacramento Foundation (DSF), the City of Sacramento Department of Convention and Cultural Services, and Old Sacramento merchants and small business owners.

Theatre of Lights artfully mixes the historic charm of Old Sacramento with state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology to create a memorable holiday experience for visitors of all ages. Old Sacramento’s Theatre of Lights blends a symphony of lights, sounds, and visual effects that transport the audience back in time with a reading of the famous poem The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore. The narrated reading of the powerful and nostalgic poem is brought to life through theatrical elements and visually exciting lighting choreography that takes place on the balconies and rooftops of Old Sacramento’s historic buildings located on K Street between Front and 2nd Streets. Incorporated last year and back by popular demand, crowd-favorite villain Jack Frost will return this season with an expanded role to provide thrilling creative tension and spectacular visual excitement.
