Christmas with the Nelsons
The Norris Theatre
Christmas with the Nelsons tells the story of three family Christmases in the lives of the Ricky Nelson Family. Not merely a concert with a few holiday songs thrown in, Christmas with the Nelsons delivers Christmas classics the Nelson family way. Interweaving quick humor, soaring sibling vocals, and state-of-the-art big screen video, Matthew and Gunnar’s completely new show will take you on a sleigh ride through time. From the “Holly Jolly” 50s when their father, Ricky, was a little boy intent on duct-taping antlers to the family cat…to the 70s’ when “Santa Claus Came to Town” delivering Schwinns for the twins in the era before bike helmets…to “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” today with the newest generation of Nelson family kids, who prove that yes, they did in fact turn out to be just like their parents after all… The entire Nelson family invites you to celebrate, Christmas with the Nelsons!
