Our holiday season at Cultural Park starts out with a bang. If you love live stage shows or the holidays, you will especially love Cultural Park Theater’s Spectacular Christmas Revue, opening Dec. 11 and running through Dec. 15. The recipe for our patrons’ favorite show of the season is a simple one; we take everyone’s favorite holiday classics, add some pop favorites with a sprinkle of Broadway surrounded with a cast of children and adults with one goal in mind … to fill the hearts of Cultural Park audiences with the true spirit of the holiday season.
Our Spectacular Christmas Revue is always upbeat and happy, filled with traditional holiday songs, perfect for all ages and a heartwarming finale to boost the Christmas spirit. The Spectacular Christmas Revue is on stage with a matinee at 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday along with evening performances at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Cultural Park Theater, 528 Cultural Park Blvd., Cape Coral. Tickets are $22 for adults, $19 for seniors with children’s prices and group rates available. Call the box office at 239-772-5862 for reservations.
Spirit of Christmas has been alive and well on the Cultural Park stage for more than 30 years, and this year we proudly present a new addition to our holiday shows when for one night only Dec 19 at 8 p.m., we proudly welcome singer, songwriter and member of The Capris, Michael D’Amore, as he takes you on a musical journey of the very best hits from the ‘50s and ‘60s with a special holiday concert.
For more than 30 years, Michael D’Amore has been a professional entertainer based out of the New York metropolitan area. Having performed in several genres, Michael eventually found himself drawn to the harmony of the classic R&B and Doo-Wop sounds.
Michael currently performs his one-man show showcasing the best of the ‘50s and ‘60s. He is also a member of The Capris and proud to sing lead on the their hits “There’s A Moon Out Tonight” and “Morse Code Of Love” for music fans around the world.
He has opened for and shared the stage with groups such as The Stylistics, Lou Christie, John Cafferty, The Loving Spoonful, The Grass Roots, Kenny Vance and the Planotones and so many groups he has admired over the years. Tickets for this event are $21 for all ages and will sell fast, so get them while you can.
Coming to the stage in 2020 … watch for more amazing shows like Nunsense in January followed by Same Time Next Year, Urinetown, The Owl and the Pussycat, Nana’s Naughty Knickers and finishing with the original revue Passage to Ireland and more great concerts like Neil Zirconia, Paul Todd Jr. and more take the concert stage.
