With just days before the kickoff of the 2020 Christmas festival, Silver Dollar City (SDC) has released daily activity schedules. This provides more insight into the outdoors shows (and locations) we can expect to see this year.
Unfortunately, the list does not include two fan-favorites — “It’s A Wonderful Life” and “Dickens’ Christmas Carol.” Those Broadway-style shows require lots of fabricated staging and special effects, making it difficult to reproduce on outdoor stages.
A few shows from year’s past will return, including Frontier Fa-La-La Follies, The Living Nativity, Sons of the Silver Dollar, Holiday Hearthside Harmonies, and Tinker Junior’s Toy Shop.
Five outdoor venues are being utilized to host 11 shows: Boatworks Theater (next to Rivertown), Dockside Theater (near Fireman’s Landing), Tom & Huck Stage (on Town Square), Plaza Stage (outside Red Gold Heritage Hall), and Gazebo (under the large tree on Town Square).
Each show is performed three to four times per day, for a total of more than 40 performances a day.
See below for the full list of 2020 shows. Exact times and locations vary depending on the day of the week, so be sure to reference the SDC mobile app or daily schedule on the website for details.
