Deck the Halls

Gather your family close and join us in creating new holiday memories at a special Candlelight Theatre production!

Every year we hunker down around the piano or organ and sing songs to celebrate the holiday season. These songs fill us with joy and lift our spirits and hearts. Melodies such as “The Twelve Days of Christmas”, “Silent Night” and “I Have a Little Dreidel” have become holiday classics. But how did these tunes originate? Who wrote them? What interesting history and myths define them? O come all ye faithful patrons and visit the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site this holiday season where you can deck the halls and join the chorus while you learn about the origins of some of your favorite holiday carols. And yes, Santa will be there to greet the kiddies.

The performances are approximately 60 minutes long; a new performance begins every half hour, with 6 shows each day, 6:00 pm until 8:30 pm and 2:00 pm until 4:30 pm on Sundays.

Treat your family and friends to a delightful holiday spectacular! Purchase a Room Buyout and bring up to 15 people along with you for a private, heartwarming performance unlike any other.

Performances will sell out! Reservations are required. Please direct questions to the Special Events and Marketing Manager: (317) 631-1888 or email
