HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) - Volunteers put up decorations and a stage Thursday for Houston's Christmas Spectacular.
Executive Director of the Chickasaw Development Foundation, Sean Johnson, said Saturday's concert will help raise money for the community theatre downtown.
Johnson said only 100 people are allowed to attend the concert to ensure social distancing. Seats for the show will be six feet apart and masks are mandatory.
The show is already sold out to see opera singer and Tony Award winner, Nathan Carlisle.
Carlisle said he is able to help since Broadway is closed and the Metropolitan Opera isn’t performing because of the pandemic.
"I wouldn’t be in the music business if I didn’t have, when I was younger, people giving back their time to me. I personally benefited from people volunteering their time to the arts,” he said.
Carlisle and other performers will have a dress rehearsal Friday. The Christmas Spectacular is set for Saturday at 7:30 at night.
