Catch the Christmas spirit with a family-oriented performance of familiar songs of the season presented by the Big Chicken Chorus at the Marietta Performing Arts Center, 1171 Whitlock Ave., on Dec. 14 and 15 at 3 p.m. This is the Chorus’ 33rd annual Christmas Show, drawing audiences from all over the metro Atlanta area.

Chorus President, Terry Morrison said, “This show is our most ambitious yet. In addition to traditional concert presentations by the full chorus and featured quartets, the front end of the show will be a musical comedy tracing the adventures of a rebellious reindeer and a disgruntled elf travelling through time and space to find the Tooth Fairy and the true meaning of Christmas. Don’t miss it.”

Tickets are on sale at www.BigChickenChorus.org or by calling 470-349-0550. Early bird prices are available through Dec. 1. Also, discounts are offered to seniors and to active duty military personnel, veterans, first-responders and their families.

The Big Chicken Chorus is a multi-generational, male chorus of more than 50 voices, singing a cappella, four-part harmony, in the style of a Barbershop Quartet.
