As Christmas comes around every year, we know to expect various yuletide events to celebrate our favorite holiday—from parades to Christmas light festivals, the possibilities are endless. This year, Claremont’s Candlelight Pavilion Dinner Theater offers up a fun, festive and classic way to celebrate the holiday with its original musical Because It’s Christmas. As the Inland Empire’s most prestigious dinner theater, Candlelight Pavilion’s Chef Juan concocts a unique and delicious meal to accompany each play during the holiday season, giving guests a savory array of dishes to choose from. With a great wait staff at the theater; guests are treated graciously from box office to seat. Because It’s Christmas is a one-of-a-kind holiday production being featured this year—with a heart-warming story accompanied by various festive songs, all performed by an exceptional cast. Children of the audience are encouraged to go up on stage to sing and dance along with Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and the rest of the gang. Festivities continue after the event, as the kids will have a chance to take sit on Santa’s lap, tell him what they wish for this year and get their photo taken. Guaranteed to be a heartwarming experience just in time for Christmas, young or old, this production will have you tapping your feet and feeling young at heart.
