to you and your family
from Chico Performances!

Christmas is the jolliest time of the year.  It's a time to celebrate the joys of this wonderful time and have fun with your friends, family and loved ones.

Meanwhile, Chico Performances continues its work to showcase only the best, most eclectic shows during, and well after, this holiday season. 

We are jam-packing Keb' Mo', Alice in Wonderland and Banana Slug String Band all into December-- it's going to be ever so jolly! After that, can you believe we'll be halfway through our season?

Chico Performances would like to thank you, the dedicated patrons and theater-enthusiasts, for all your support through the years!  The theater is nothing without an audience.  

We hope to "see you at the theater" one last time to close out 2011 with a bang!
