  1. Can you make this schedule in a format that can be printed out? Thank you.

    • David says:

      Hey Robert. We’ve condensed the holiday schedule to it’s simplest format in this post. You should be able to print it using your web browser. Just go to the File menu and select Print. Another option is to copy the text and paste it into a word processor. Hope this helps, and hope you enjoy the holiday programs.

  2. Dawn says:

    Thanks for doing this – so much easier than looking through the regular schedule!

  3. leslie says:

    Love the update on the Holiday schedule. However, I am disappointed Celtic Thunder is not on the schedule. Thanks!

  4. I can’t print it out! Not sure what to do! My computer says, done, but with errors on page. I’ve tried it twice!

    • Erik says:

      Hi Marie- Perhaps it is an error with the Web browser you are using. Would you be able to try another one, like Firefox, Google Chrome or another? Sorry for the frustration!

    • Marcus says:

      What internet browser are you using? Internet Explorer frequently produces that error message; you may have better luck printing if you try using Firefox or Chrome.

  5. Mark says:

    I’m using Internet Explorer (9). The schedule printed beautifully, via file, print.
