Dr. Littleton's Christmas Concert Always A Hit!

One of the biggest supporters the Princess Theatre has is Dr. Eric J. Littleton and his family!  He enjoys coming to the Princess each Christmas, almost as much as we love having him.  I get several inquiries annually, just before Christmas, asking when is "Littleton" coming? 
He usually comes a couple of weeks earlier, but this year his schedule prevented it from happening until the 23rd!  This may have held attendance down a bit, but it was still one of his best shows to date!  He just keeps getting better!
His technique, or style, of not playing the old classics note-for-note is wonderful.  You can find yourself toe-tapping to a great sound, when suddenly you realize you're rocking along to "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"!  "What? I hate that song?"  However, Dr. Littleton makes it sound so good, so new, so enjoyable.  You'll have to come to understand what I mean!  Unfortunately for you, that will have to be next season!
Filling in for Muse Watson this year was our friend Phil Williams, of News Talk WOKI-FM radio.  He did, as he would say, "a marvelous job"!  He read the traditional "Night Before Christmas", and a classic from Paul Harvey the "The Man and the Birds" story.  That one always brings a tear to my eye!

This year he also brought Abbie (Abigail Sinders), who plays reminiscent of some of best Irish fiddle players, and, not surprisingly enough, she is of Irish heritage!  Together they brought a new emotion to the music on stage.
And, of course, it would not be a concert, so grandmother Littleton thinks, unless Caleb Littleton joined his father on stage for a rousing rendition of "Little Drummer Boy"!

Here are more of last Friday's photographs for you to enjoy.  Were you there?
