"a dose of holiday magic that’s sure to linger" - Asheville Stages

If you're ready for your heart to be warmed, get yourself a ticket to Snowbound! People are loving this sweet, family-friendly, WNC holiday tale - and we think you will, too!

Snowbound combines stories and songs - both traditional Christmas tunes and original bluegrass numbers performed live onstage by an absolutely terrific band! - to tell the tale of a Christmas Eve in a tiny train depot. Though the play is fictional, the stories are based on true stories, or parts of true stories that playwright Tom Godleski heard from family and friends over the years.  

And guess what? Because we all were snowbound last weekend, we've added a matinee performance on Saturday at 2:30 pm!

Jamie Laval's Celtic Christmas

Saturday, December 29, 2018 * 8:00 pm
Performed on the Mainstage

This is the second year that Jamie Laval has brought his Celtic Christmas to our stage - and the folks who went last year just loved it! If you missed it, you've got another chance this year!

Jamie Laval’s Celtic Christmas captures the beauty and atmosphere of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, and Iceland during the holidays. An entertaining and thought-provoking family holiday experience, the show weaves a tapestry of music, dance, poetry, and stories that hearken back to the ancient Celtic celebrations associated with the Winter Solstice and Christmas.
Buy Tickets Now!
Joining Laval is a cast of young, critically-prasied performers of Celtic harp, woodwinds, guitar, Irish step dancing, and extraordinary vocals.
