'Rock 'n' Roll Xmas' Dec. 8

The Central Lakes College Theatre Cultural Arts Series will present “Rock ’n’ Roll Xmas Spectacular” for the third year on Wed., Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the John Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus. “Rock’n’ Roll Xmas Spectacular” is a Las Vegas-caliber, multi-media, full-production show that mixes an eight-piece band with music, comedy, parodies, and even a game show. They play Christmas standards such as “Silent Night,” “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen,” “Rockin’ Round the Christmas Tree,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and many others in a unique, rock-oriented fashion. “Until you’ve heard “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen” as Jethro Tull might have played it, you haven’t experienced Christmas songs in their fullest glory,” said Patrick Spradlin, series coordinator. “And to hear a Led Zepplin version of a Christmas carol is really fun.”Tickets can be purchased by calling the CLC Theatre Box Office at 855-8199, or online at
