Holiday Movies, Events & Activities for All Ages at Palmdale Playhouse

PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale will present a wide variety of holiday entertainment and events to celebrate the season at the Palmdale Playhouse, located at 38334 10th St. East. 

The fun starts on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. with the Tim Burton holiday smash-up movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Pumpkin King Jack Skellington schemes to spread the joy of Christmas. However, his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere. Seats are $5 per person.

During Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in December, visit the always-popular Santa’s Wonderland for a meet and greet with Jolly Old St. Nick. Reservations are required and may be made starting Nov. 14 at Because of the large turnout expected, interested persons are encouraged to register early and walk-ups cannot be accommodated. The cost is $5 per family and includes the visit, one 5x7 photo frame cover, and a goodie bag with a treat and activity for each child 12 and under.

On Saturday, Dec. 3, at 6 p.m. come to celebrate Christmas through the beautiful art of dance and carols as Darci McKee, Erin Hvegholm, and Heather Benes present Christmas Celebration. The evening will include the classic "O Christmas Tree", "Christmas Lights" by Coldplay, toe-tapping to "Plum Puddin" by the Ramsey Lewis Trio, Tchaikovsky Tchotchkes, and a hip hop groove to "Wisemen" by Cross Movement. Tickets are $17 for adults and $14 for seniors, students, military, and ages 12 and under. 

On Saturday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. enjoy Christmas Through the Years with the AV Children's Choir as they sing some of the season's most beloved songs, with hit classics like, "O Holy Night" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.” Tickets are $17 for adults and $12 for seniors, students, military, and ages 12 and under. 

On Sunday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. come for Sharpo’s Holiday Magic Matinee. This age-appropriate interactive magic show with Sharpo!® and magic holiday elves and fairies is tailored for younger audiences. Children make the magic happen in this spectacular program full of holiday cheer. After the show, meet and greet the players as they make balloon twists for the kids. Tickets are $17 for adults and $7 for seniors, students, military, and ages 12 and under. 

Wrapping things up are two outstanding musical performances by talented local musicians. On Friday, Dec. 16 at 7:30 p.m., West Coast Classical presents Making Spirits Bright, their beginning to pro-level musicians playing an exciting, joyous program filled with your favorite holiday music. Tickets are $12 for adults and $9 for seniors, students, military, and ages 12 and under. 

On Saturday, Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m., West Coast Classical Concert and Symphonic Orchestras present Sounds of the Holidays. Two 50-piece full orchestras will perform holiday favorites which will be sure to create wonderful musical memories. Tickets are $17 for adults and $14 for seniors, students, military, and ages 12 and under.
