Classic scenes like a Living Nativity and that legendary favorite, "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" plus the spectacular "12 Days of Christmas" appeal to all ages. With cavorting teddy bears, marching wooden soldiers, flying reindeer, and Santa himself, it’s easy to see why both children and adults find the production mesmerizing. "From start to finish, the show is wonderful," said Gail Hunt of Boaz, "and the costumes unbelievable. It’s a great chance to see the Rockettes in action without going to New York." (Ticket prices for the production, sponsored by Allstate, range from $29-$79.) Call toll-free 1-888-987-9672 or visit www.gaylordopryland.com.
