CO-PRESENTED BY STATE THEATRE NEW JERSEY AND CROSSROADS THEATRE COMPANY

Join us for a unique concert that celebrates the holiday seasons in and around the month of December. This co-production between the State Theatre and the Tony Award®-winning Crossroads Theatre Company features local choirs, Broadway talent, and community organizations including Gospel choirs, South Asian Dance, and more! Featuring the Youth Choir of Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple, Abundant Youth Dance Troupe, JP Stevens South Asian Dance Troupe, Rutgers Liberated Gospel Choir, and the Body & Music School from Piscataway. “We are honored to partner with Crossroads to celebrate the diversity of our community during this holiday season,” said Sarah Chaplin, President & CEO of State Theatre New Jersey.

A joyous culture gathering of song and dance with musical direction by Jeanel LeBlanc, graduate of Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. “This time of year is one of my favorites and we are pleased to share this joyous time of year with the community,” states LeBlanc, veteran performer of Off-Broadway. The show will be sprinkled with a healthy dose of audience participation along with special guests which includes Mayor Cahill of New Brunswick adding a special touch of holiday cheer.

In addition to Christmas, the 90-minute concert will celebrate such cultures and religions as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, and Ramadan. “Our goal is to provide families a meaningful multi-cultural celebration for people of all ages during this special time of year,” declares Crossroads’ producing artistic director Marshall Jones, III.
