Get your tickets early, and meet us under the mistletoe! (Run time is 90 minutes.)


We have three fun (and free!) events to help you celebrate the season, and fill your life with even more Follies goodness!

November 26th – Christmas Tree Lighting

First, join us here at Touchstone out on the Barrio Stage on Saturday, November 26th at 5pm, as we light the Southside Christmas Tree. Featuring a Mini-Follies performance by the Touchstone Theatre/Moravian University MFA students and holiday tunes by local legend Dave Fry, as well as goodies by Southside favorites Roasted and Five Maidens Cidery. There will be cookies, hot chocolate, and plenty of Christmas cheer to go around!

December 1st through 23rd – Live Advent Calendar

Additionally, beginning on December 1st at 5:30pm, and continuing every evening through the 23rd, join us at the Goundie House (501 Main Street) for The Live Advent Calendar! Presented by the Downtown Bethlehem Association, featuring some of your favorite Touchstone actors, every evening we will be selecting a member of the audience to come and open the door and see what sort of surprises await inside. What better way to countdown to the most wonderful day of the year? More info can be found here!
