Written by TJ Davis
Presented by Pickleville On Tour
Pickleville On Tour is bringing the holiday magic to Salt Lake City this December!
Brandon Baxter needs a Christmas miracle. Out of luck, out of a job, and completely out of money, he falls asleep on Christmas Eve wondering how his young children will react when they wake to discover that Santa didn’t come. Suddenly Brandon is trasported via his dreams to a magical North Pole world where everything is in crisis and he’s the elf in charge! With help from his workshop co-workers (who bear a striking resemblance to several of his cooky neighbors), he comes up with a crazy, musical plan to save the entire North Pole operation!
Written by Pickleville’s own TJ Davis, I Believe in Christmas is a re-imagining of the widely acclaimed Once Upon a North Pole Christmas. The show features a cast full of Pickleville favorites, a chorus of beautiful dancers, a sleigh-full of laughs, and plenty of holiday musical numbers to put you in a festive mood.
It’s the perfect family Christmas event for all ages, helping you create a lasting memory during the most wonderful time of the year. Join the thousands of families who count Pickleville Christmas as their favorite holiday Tradition!

Lark & Spur: Season of Light, Traditional and Modern Carols
December 23rd at 7:30pm
When Jeff Whiteley first heard Lori Decker’s voice, he told her if she sang in the streets of Paris, something would happen. She replied, “let’s go see.” They went to Paris. She sang and traffic stopped.
As the name suggests, Lark & Spur started out as a duo. Lori Decker and Jeff Whiteley began their musical career together as street musicians (acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals) in Paris, Annecy, Munich and other European cities. Those early street performances led to appearances on radio and TV in France and Switzerland; and ultimately to invitations to perform at major music festivals in France and Switzerland, specifically in Deauville, Montreux, Brienz and, Juan les Pins.
Back in Utah other musicians were added. Now the line up includes Sebastian Neugebaur on piano, Rich Dixon on guitar, Alicia Wrigley on upright bass and vocals, Ray Smith on woodwinds, and Jay Lawrence on percussion.
Lark & Spur was instrumental in the founding of the arts non profit Excellence in the Community. The ensemble counts performances in France, Switzerland, Holladay, Canada, and of course Utah; and millions of views on YouTube.
The Lark & Spur Christmas Concert at the Grand Theatre is a cherished tradition for many families. Traditional and modern carols performed with acoustic instruments, and three part harmonies. Lark & Spur is honored to be performing this program at the Grand Theatre this holiday season.
