The Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater is a beautifully-restored treasure listed on the National Register of Historic Places that offers visitors a unique and visually stunning experience. The theater is located at 315 North Chestnut Street in the heart of downtown Lumberton. First opened in 1928 as a vaudeville and silent film house, the theater offers a wide array of programming including live touring performances, original productions, art exhibits, films, special events and rentals.
With the Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater closed to live audiences due to the governor’s executive order greatly limiting in-person crowd sizes, the theater’s very popular annual “A Robeson County Christmas Show” will temporarily be transformed into a virtual streaming link option to be purchased and viewed from the cozy comfort of your home.
Watching A Robeson County Christmas Show Virtual Special at home will be reminiscent of “old school” television Christmas specials. It will include a mix of new performances and top rated selections from last year’s edition. Featured artists recorded on the theater’s stage will also include
Lakota John, Alexis Jones and Kendrix Singletary!
This year, our annual heart-warming holiday musical revue will be available through the theater’s etix ticketing platform for $15, and will be valid for the entire purchased date (you can view the special on demand during the 24-hour window, after which it disappears), December 18, 19, 20 and 25. There will be a link to view the stream in your ticket purchase confirmation email. An email address is needed to receive the streaming link. Streaming Links can be purchased through the theater’s web site at https://www.etix.com/…/carolina-civic-center-historic… or by phone, 1:00pm-5:30pm weekdays at 910.738.4339.
The annual Christmas show, now in its ninth year, has become one of the region’s most popular holiday traditions, with 10 performances selling out last year. To continue this community spirit, the theater’s supporters and fans are encouraged to take photos of themselves, families and pets in front of their Christmas decorations (in holiday-themed sweaters and pajamas, if the spirit so moves) and post or tag the Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater on Facebook.
Ticket purchasers will be entered into a $50 gift card drawing announced at the conclusion of each show on our Facebook platform.
