Sunday, December 11 at 4:00 p.m. Robinson-Olson Auditorium, West Point Middle/High School Tickets: $5
This year we’re celebrating our 17th annual production of O’ Night Divine. Now one of our community's cherished holiday traditions, this show walks the audience through the story of Christ’s birth through dancing, acting and singing. This year's performance will begin with a family stranded in an airport trying to get to a family gathering for Christmas. Through delays and cancellations, they will seek out and discover the true meaning of Christmas.Tickets are $5, and additional donations will be accepted as any profit will be donated to the Christmas Dreams Organization and King William Emergency Ministries. Audience members may also browse the silent auction in the lobby, where Christmas gift baskets will be auctioned off to support the DSD Competition Dance Team. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the DSD Studio during rehearsals (see below for rehearsal dates and times) or at the door. Don't miss this beautiful presentation featuring our community's talents -- a reminder of the reason for the season!
