SIDNEY — Gateway Arts Council will present two, holiday performances.

The weekend festivities start Nov. 30 with a holiday show just for the kids. The Cincinnati Children’s Theatre will perform “Reindeer Games” at 7 p.m., in the Cameo Theater, 304 S. West Ave.

Dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, Santa’s four-hoofed sleigh team, are playing games — game show style — as The Children’s Theatre presents a Christmas game show. There are plenty of audience participation, laughs, good cheer and celebration! Tickets for “Reindeer Games” are $6 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under.

Dec. 2, at 2 and 7 p.m., in the Sidney High School auditorium, 1215 Campbell Ave., Gateway Arts Council will present Steve Lippia in “Simply Sinatra Christmas.” World-renowned Frank Sinatra interpreter Lippia brings an enchanting evening filled with Sinatra’s classic holiday songs, the legendary crooner’s signature works and a variety of popular Christmas songs. This show is a wonderful blend of holiday cheer, memories and jazz/swing standards with an energetic flair that only a big band can provide

Audiences will be treated to “Come Fly with Me,” “All The Way,” “Summer Wind,” “Lady Is a Tramp” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” as well as Christmas favorites, “Let It Snow,” “Santa Clause is Coming to Town” and “White Christmas.”

Lippia has become one of the most prominent, in-demand vocalists and has quickly established his place among the finest interpreters of “standards” and traditional pop music in the nation.

Tickets for “Simply Sinatra” are $23 for general admission and $22 for AAA members. Those who purchase three tickets to the performance, get the fourth one at no charge. Tickets are available at Gateway Arts Council and Ron & Nita’s, by calling 498-2787 or online at http://gatewayartscouncil.org/simply-sinatra-christmas.
