The musical variety show is patterned after the Bing Crosby and Perry Como televised Christmas programs of the ’60s and ’70s, and this year’s host is Rusty Page of Linville.

Directed by Gary Smith and choreographed by Shauna Godwin, the cast includes: Will Allen, Rebecca Booth, Leah England, Steve Frank, Derek Gagnier, Maureen Klinedinst, Stephen Redmon-Byrum, Melissa Tausche, Maya Cook, Sidney Ginn, Michael Navarro, India Roseman, Max Schlenker, Matthew Shaw, Savannah Troyer and Vincent Troyer.

"Christmas in Blowing Rock, III" is a family-friendly program full of Christmas stories, silly skits, songs and dancing that organizers hope will delight audiences of all ages. Little ones in the audience will also have an opportunity to participate in the fun.

"We've had a great year at Ensemble Stage, and we look forward to presenting this high-energy show," artistic director Gary Smith said. “It gets bigger and better every time we do it. Who knows, it might even snow on stage this year.”
