CLEMSON — The Brooks Center for the Performing Arts at Clemson University will present “The Spirit of Christmas,” a New York-style holiday spectacular complete with the season’s most memorable songs, showgirls, reindeer and elves. The show will be at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8.

“It’s sure to be the biggest holiday program we’ve hosted at the Brooks Center,” said Lillian Harder, the director of the performing arts center.

“The show is the perfect way to kick off the season,” she said. “Families — those with children and those without — will enjoy this wonderful holiday show.”

It features famous hits from Broadway’s greatest holiday shows and many of the most popular Christmas songs, including “White Christmas,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “The Little Drummer Boy,” “Silent Night,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Joy to the World,” “The First Noel,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Frosty the Snowman,” “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” and many others.

“But no Christmas spectacular is complete without the jolly old elf,” said Harder. The night of the show, Santa Claus is scheduled to make a special appearance at the Brooks Center. “I’m sure he’ll be there to check his list and to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”

Tickets for “The Spirit of Christmas” are $30 for adults and $20 for students. Tickets and information are available at www.clemson.edu/Brooks or from the box office at 864-656-7787 from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
