The Muppet Christmas Carol
Dec. 16, 2018 - Dec. 16, 2018 , 3:00 PM
The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets — Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle — weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases — past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness.

98° AT CHRISTMAS
Dec. 20, 2018 - Dec. 20, 2018 , 7:30 PM
98°, the Billboard chart-topping boy band, who have sold more than 10 million records worldwide, will bring their holiday album, Let It Snow, to the Rialto Square Theatre on Thursday, December 20th 2018. In five short years — from 1997 to 2002 — they'd sold a staggering 10 million records, scored a chart-topping single, "Thank God I Found You," with Mariah Carey and Joe, and collaborated with their collective idol, Stevie Wonder, on "True to Your Heart," for the 1998 animated Disney film, Mulan. Their four-million-selling album, 98° and Rising (1998, Motown), spawned the top-5 favorites "Because of You," "I Do," and "The Hardest Thing," while 2000's Revelation (Universal Records), which sold two million copies, peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200 and yielded a trio of hits, "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)," "My Everything" and "The Way You Want Me To." In 2001, the all-Ohio-raised quartet decided to take a break. Their sold out tours in 2013 and 2016 proved a demand for 98° so when the timing was right with the band's schedules, they recorded and released their first full-length Christmas album in 18 years, Let It Snow.
