Christmas on the River – Celebrations across Louisiana
Everybody celebrates Christmas, but in Louisiana, Christmas is a colorful, diverse and unique celebration.  Up and down the highways and byways of our state, the people of our state gather around rivers, bayous and lakes to celebrate Christmas in many cultural ways with wonderful variety.  Our 2018 Cottonland Christmas presentation will highlight the diversity of our state as we travel up the rivers of our state celebrating Christmas Louisiana-style.

Returning to a tradition started years ago by Strauss, we celebrate the Christmas season in “Cottonland Christmas” featuring area soloists, ensembles, and dance groups, all sharing the joys of the season.  Come get in the spirit of Christmas!  


COTTONLAND CHRISTMAS is presented by Strauss Theatre Center on
December 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th.
Director Vicki Krutzer
