People around Grand Island know all about the annual Singing Christmas Tree production that's happened every December since 1973. That makes the 37th edition of this G.I. holiday classic.
Marty Gordon is one of the shows directors, "It's truly an amazing event. First of all, when you tell someone it's a singing Christmas tree they kind of look at you like, 'OK, so the tree sings?' And I'm like, 'no, we load it full of choir members.'"
On any given night, 400 church members are involved in the production.
Kali Ramsey loves to perform and she's been a part of the production all her life. And this year she came home from UNL to play the role of the Virgin Mary, "They specifically asked me if I wanted to audition and I was hesitant, I've got a lot a lot of schoolwork, but something was just tugging at me saying get back there, get back into this. It's a great experience. The people here are so fantastic. The rest of the cast is just great we all work wonders together."
The cast and crew of the Singing Christmas Tree will be wrapping up their 3 week run with four performances coming up this Saturday and Sunday.
