A family friendly musical tradition continues this year as Peoria Players and the Peoria Area Performing Arts Studio collaborate for a celebration of song and dance for the 3rd annual Holiday Special.

The Holiday Special will feature current and former students from the Peoria Area Performing Arts Studio along with some of Peoria Players’ finest talents, including Michelle Watson, Chris Ennis, Bree Carroll, Rusty Brost, Juanita Williams, Anita Foster, Wes Hunt, Selah Schertz, Keliah Schertz and Ayana Thompson. The production is directed again this year by Bryan Blanks and Dedra Baker. The songs audiences loved from the past productions will return along with some new favorites. The show features selections from artists, such as Frank Sinatra, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Dean Martin, N’Sync, Blake Shelton and more. The show will also feature a number from Elf and Polar Express for the kids.

“This show has become a special tradition for Dedra and I. It was a chance to see our students and peers perform together. We hope you can join us for an evening that showcases how much talent Peoria has. All in one production!” – Bryan Blanks
