Grab your coats, hats and bring the hot cocoa, because this year Christmas Canteen is moving outside for a socially distant affair! For one weekend only, performances will take place in the open air at The Bowl at Sugar Hill.

For thousands across the region, it’s just not Christmas without Christmas Canteen.

CONTENT ADVISORY: Aurora Theatre recognizes each family’s need to make informed decisions about what is appropriate for their family. We do not presume that every show is well-suited for every person, and it is in that spirit we share the following content considerations. This play contains traditional Christian carols, the celebration of Hanukkah, and a Military Tribute.
