A Story From Hometown Holiday Past: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Each year’s Hometown Holiday performance includes rousing music, hilarious comedy and maximum merriment. Prior to each show’s big musical finish, tradition requires master storyteller J.R. Sullivan take the stage and regale the audience with a tale about his formative years in Rockford and the early days of his life as a professional thespian.

The lights go down, the spot light hits stage center left and J.R. holds the audience in the palm of his hand, as he did in 2008 when he relived a 1973 theatrical adventure that took place in a K-Mart parking lot in Freeport, Illinois when J.R. was just 23 years young.

Click the link below to read "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear & A Blue Light Special." And, please join us for this year’s Hometown Holiday December 8, 9 and 10 in festive downtown Rockford at the Nordlof Center on the J.R. Sullivan Stage.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
