South Mountain Aglow

On the night of the Winter Solstice - the darkest night of the year - the country's largest municipal park lights up with one mile of luminarias along the Judith Tunell sidewalk trail, accompanied by artwork, food trucks, and musicians.

The Truth About Santa (An Apocalyptic Holiday Tale)

Saturday-Monday

 

We all know Old Saint Nick is usually jolly as can be, but not in this production from BLK BOX PHX. In this twisted holiday romp, Santa is a rampaging home wrecker - but not to worry: there's still some holiday cheer sprinkled on top.
