The performance is part of the Reynolds Homestead’s annual Victorian Christmas celebrations, which also will include a Victorian Christmas Open House from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10.

Bright Star Touring Theatre specializes in literary, curriculum and character-education based performances, and the group has earned a national reputation for high quality performances that play to a young audience’s intelligence and meet National Standards of learning. Holidays Around the World is suitable for all ages, and features a story of tour guides getting separated at holiday time, during which time a worldwide adventure awaits. As they travel around the world in search of each other, the guides share what they learn about the season from a wide variety of places and cultures. Celebrate holidays from all over the globe – the Lohri Festival, St. Lucia Day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas and more.
