The award-winning Fountain Hills Theater is offering several performances this holiday season, each sure to delight the theater buff in your family.

Man of La Mancha, a moving musical based on the 17th century novel Don Quixote, is playing now through November 24. It is the first show to musicalize a piece of historical literature. The story proves that an old man’s belief can truly make him a knight.

This year’s A Christmas Carol and The Elves & the Shoemaker are sure to work their magic. Both shows play December 6-22.

Have a budding thespian in your family? Be sure to sign them up for the Fountain Hills Theater’s youth Winter Break Camps held December 30 – January 3. Kids 5-13 learn acting, dancing and singing skills, helping build confidence, encourage creativity and activate critical thinking.

If these activities don’t fit into your holiday schedule, consider slipping a Fountain Hills Theater gift certificate into that special someone’s Christmas stocking.

For more information and tickets, visit or stop by the theater at 11445 N. Saguaro Blvd. in Fountain Hills.
