An original production first presented in 2008, and then again in 2016, A Christmas Wish features local talent and guest artists from afar to tell the story of a small girl away from home on Christmas Eve. Lost and exhausted, she makes her way to an abandoned theater where she snuggles in an empty seat and falls asleep. Her dream reveals an angel who was sent to earth by God to find the one thing that best represents everything good that has been done since the birth of His son, Jesus Christ.

The music of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra transcends the audience through the story of the little girl’s dream. After she awakes, she is met by a kindly barkeeper who assists her with getting back home to her father. The angel returns to heaven and places in the Lord’s hand the wish of a soul for the happiness of another.
