LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Celebrate the winter season and Christmas holiday during one of several events happening in the Capital City this weekend from the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau.

NWU Theatre Presents Holiday Inn

What if your twin desires were to settle down, and to dazzle? For Jim, the answer is the Holiday Inn: a quiet farmhouse that bursts to life as a holiday-only music venue. It’s a hit. But can he ever expect a lover to strike the same unusual balance of peace and performance? This hit musical features several of Irving Berlin’s cherished holiday favorites, like “White Christmas” and “Happy Holidays.” This event is at NWU’s Elder Lab Theatre.

Friday 7:30 p.m., Saturday 2 and 7:30 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m.; Adults: $18, Seniors: $14
