Holiday season takes stage to celebrate in western Nevada County

Those looking for a few more way to ring in the holiday season have several options ahead of Christmas, including the annual downtown celebrations in both Grass Valley and Nevada City.
Cornish Christmas will be celebrated 6-9 p.m. tonight in Grass Valley and one final time for 2022 on Friday, Dec. 23. Victorian Christmas returns to Nevada City 1:30-6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18.
In addition to the annual holiday street faires, three upcoming performances take stage to celebrate the season with LeGacy Presents putting on “Scrooge,” Sierra Stages and Miners Foundry producing Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory” and the Sierra Master Chorale is hosted by InConcert Sierra.
InConcert Sierra presents the Sierra Master Chorale’s “Holiday Joy” with “familiar carols with a lively twist and new seasonal favorites, all combine with the spirited sound of brass, percussion and organ.” The performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18, at the Seventh-day Adventist Church, 12889 Osborne Hill Road, in Grass Valley.

According to The Union, “Scrooge” will take stage at the Nevada Theatre on Broad Street 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, with a 2 p.m. Christmas Eve show.
“It really has become tradition,” producer and director Sue LeGate-Halford told The Union. “So many people call to make reservations for their whole family, and they plan their family trip around it, when grandma or other family are coming to town – it’s a family reunion to go see ‘Scrooge’ and it’s a delightful show. It’s a tradition we hope to continue for a long time.”

Sierra Stages and Miners Foundry will present Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory” for one show only at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21.
“Directed by Sands Hall, this classic short story features the talents of local actors Mary Baird and David Painter,” The Union reports. “As a bonus gift, Sands will join musical luminaries Maggie McKaig and Luke Wilson from the band Beaucoup Chapeaux for a post-reading singalong!”
