The Grady Nichols Christmas Show, a Tulsa Tradition, will return for its seventh season this year. The 2023 show will be held at the Mabee Center and will feature Andy Chrisman and Kelly Ford, along with a twelve-person cast of Tulsa’s best musical talent. Over the years, the Christmas show has provided upbeat, funky, selections along with original and familiar Christmas songs. This is a perfect way to prepare for the holiday season (who doesn’t love a sax at Christmas!)
This year’s theme is “Joining Tulsans Together,” and proceeds will assist the nonprofit, Lisa Bain Ministries, in their mission to deliver hope and tangible support to people facing illness and personal crisis. Care, connection and community is at the heart of Lisa Bain Ministries. The organization provides Resilience Care Boxes and bags, to patients, veterans, Gold Star families, those facing homelessness, and children in crisis. They also incorporate animal therapy into many of their deliveries and projects. This tangible support helps people break through loneliness and find the hope they need. Funds raised go to those in our local community. Let’s join Tulsans together to make a difference in real lives during the Christmas season – and throughout the year.
