Silver Dollar City Announces 2 New Productions Nov. 6 Through Dec. 30

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

Silver Dollar City is celebrating An Old Time Christmas by presenting two new production shows, one, the all new Home For Christmas and the other, a complete rescoring and restaging of the classic Dickens’ Christmas Carol, nearly 700 miles of lights and many traditional favorites of the reigning, four-time winner of ‘Best Theme Park Holiday Event’ in America.  Silver Dollar City presents this festival running Nov. 6-Dec. 30. 

Highlights include 30 shows each day and night; an elaborate eight-story, animated Christmas tree; over 6.5 million lights; Christmas in Midtown; holiday foods; Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Christmas Light Parade; The Frisco Sing-Along Steam Train, A Dickens’ Christmas Carol; plus award-winning rides coasting through the night skies.  

Along with “Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Christmas Light Parade” winding through the streets twice each evening, multiple venues present other fan favorites such as The Living Nativity and the Saloon Frontier Fa-La-La Follies. The City’s new $500,000 production, Home For Christmas, a Broadway-style show, “will feature 12 singers and dancers, a four-piece band, 28 songs and over 40 costume changes,” says Producer Casey Robertson. “A Dickens’ Christmas Carol is also returning, with new staging, new music and new twists on the classic favorite. It will be remarkable, from the snow to the beautiful set design, guests will be immersed in the Dickens’ experience. We have revitalized a holiday classic and made it into something really special.” he added. 

Rollercoasters soar through the night sky with Christmas lights below, while Silver Dollar City’s famed Steam Train takes riders on a sing-along adventure. Bright lights line every inch of streets, buildings, walkways and trees, greeting guests with Joy on Town Square’s custom-designed, video-motion, towering tree. Just steps beyond, guests find Christmas in Midtown’s jaw-dropping display of  light tunnels, wreath portals, flying angels, running reindeer, a moving train, stars, snowflakes and a giant turning globe, all created at Silver Dollar City. 

New this Christmas season, the Holiday Meal Package gives the food enthusiasts a chance to enjoy a meal and a snack of their choosing, including a souvenir Christmas mug. Guests can visit family-style restaurants serving holiday foods, along with treats of the season created in on-site kitchens and bakeries.  Foods include Holiday Dinner with smoked turkey, ham, prime rib and trimmings, specialty soups like potato leek, Silver Dollar City’s Miner’s Beef Stew plus a variety of desserts, from homemade ice cream to fried pies and holiday funnel cakes.

Silver Dollar City’s largest and newest addition, Rivertown, adds to the feeling of celebration with thousands of LED lights outlining Clara Belle’s Cinnamon Bread bakery and the Rivertown Smokehouse, featuring fresh-smoked meats and specialty desserts.  The Rivertown Smokehouse offers covered decks with heaters, allowing for outdoor dining along the banks of the Mystic River.    
The two-month long holiday event boasts some impressive statistics such as over 6.5 million lights (that’s 680 miles of brilliance), 1,000 decorated Christmas trees, 600 wreaths, and over three miles of garland and ribbon.  Christmas In Midtown bursts with the colors of 1.5 million LED lighted tunnels and displays up nine stories.
