“It’s too early to start celebrating the holiday season,” said no one ever. With Halloween out of the way, it’s about time we get into the real spirit of the holidays. And we have just the thing that will get you there— Candy Cane Kids – A Holiday Musical.”

Yes, this smash hit of a Christmas musical by Calgary’s own Occasional Notes Productions is back this season with limited performances. Only this time there is a whole lot of new— a new script, new choreography, two new songs, and even a few new cast members.

Now here comes the fun twist— select evening shows of the musical will actually be massive pajama parties. Yup, the 3PM show on Saturday, November 26th and the 7PM show on Friday, December 2nd are extra special because guests are encouraged to wear their best holiday pajamas! If this doesn’t get you in the holiday spirit, we don’t know what will!

The only drawback is that the show is on for a limited two-weekend season from November 26th to December 4th, 2022. And tickets are selling out fast. Our suggestion: grab your tix while you still can..
