It’s the 20th Anniversary of Aurora Theater’s Christmas Canteen!

Gwinnett’s longest running theatrical holiday tradition, Christmas Canteen, returns for its 20th season. This nostalgic musical revue is a winter wonderland that just keeps getting better. Combined with the awe-inspiring Festival of Trees, we guarantee to give you a Christmas to you’ll never forget!

The musical is divided into two acts, each about an hour-long, chock full of memorable seasonal songs and joy! The show originally started out as a 40’s WW2 theme musical, but has evolved over its 20 years. With each year morphing it gradually, the show includes more songs from the 50’s, and it’s hard to go wrong with those joyous classics. “Christmas Canteen” isn’t a military show anymore, yet there is an armed forces tribute after the intermission with pictures of local patrons, friends and family who has served over the years.

The rest of the show consists of more merriment for the holidays with tunes like Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby” and other Christmas classics.
