“Sights & Sounds of Christmas,” a holiday-themed presentation of performances, music, and a light show, will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 17, and at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 18, in the Performance Hall at the Franco Center in Lewiston.

“Make it a holiday tradition to visit the Franco Center each year for our spectacular Christmas show,” said Elaine Roop, the nonprofit’s board president. “Our show has all the best sights and sounds of the season all rolled into one magical live production.”

Franco Center Production Director Jake Hodgkin described the overall emphasis on an old-fashioned homestyle Christmas. “If you are looking to get in the holiday spirit, don’t miss this show,” he said.

Dramatical Christmas readings and skits featuring Emily Boyd, Michelle Breton, Pam Bryant, and Holden Gray are planned. Musical performances will include Emma Encarnacion, Jackie Preston, Ross Cunningham, Jake Hodgkin, and Theresa Cormier. The Dance Center students will perform scenes from “The Nutcracker” and “Frozen 2.”

Throughout the event several musical pieces will be accompanied by a holiday light show. A live radio show will be dramatized by CarlaRose Dubois, David Hanright, Randy Hunt, and Bob LeBlanc. Several songs will be included for the audience to sing along with the performers. Great Falls Model Railroad club will have a display in Heritage Hall that patrons can view before the show and during intermission.

The Franco Center will be brimming with Christmas decorations, more than a dozen lit Christmas trees, holiday lights and music, throughout its building offering festive backdrops for selfies and family photos. “Make time for your loved ones this season and attend our spectacular Christmas show,” said Roop.
