OTHER FOLLIES FESTIVITIES
We have three fun (and free!) events to help you celebrate the season, and fill your life with even more Follies goodness!
November 24th – Northside Christmas Tree Lighting
Join us at Payrow Plaza on Friday, November 24th at 5pm, as they light the Northside Christmas Tree. Featuring a high-flying performance by some of your Touchstone Theatre favorites!
November 25th – Southside Christmas Tree Lighting
Before the lighting of the Southside Christmas Tree, on Saturday, November 25th at 5pm, Touchstone Theatre & Moravian University MFA students will perform with merriment and festive hi-jinx! Complimentary cocoa and cookies will be provided by Bethlehem’s Roasted, and harmony-heavy melodic rock band The Beautiful Distortion will be outdoors filling the air with holiday tunes!
December 1st through 23rd – Live Advent Calendar
Additionally, beginning on December 1st at 5:30pm, and continuing every evening through the 23rd, join us at the Historic Bethlehem Partnership’s Goundie House (501 Main Street) for The Live Advent Calendar! The Downtown Bethlehem Association (DBA), an entity of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites and Touchstone Theatre host this special tradition on Main Street each December. Every evening some of your favorite Touchstone actors will be selecting a member of the audience to come and open the door and see what sort of surprises await inside. What better way to countdown to the most wonderful day of the year? More info can be found here!
