Keep the Spirit
A Holiday Concert For The Whole Family
For twenty years Tickle Tune Typhoon has been presenting its annual holiday concert series. This program is filled with original, traditional and ethnic styles of music and dance celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah and the winter season. Joining the Tickle Tune cast are the beautiful waltzing snowflakes, festive dancing Christmas trees and the whacky "Marvelous Toy". Santa's Christmas elves will lead the audience in doing the famous "Santa's Belly Boogie", sing along to a rollicking "Rockin' Ruolph" or discover what is inside the "Special Present". Traditional songs like "Jingle Bells" and adaptations like "He'll Be Coming Down The Chimney" are combined with the holiday classic of "Silent Night" or the ethnic song and dance of Hanukkah. This musical event for the whole family brings people of all ages together to sing, dance and celebrate in the holiday season.
