Springfield’s March Theater will present its first live show since the start of the pandemic, at 7 p.m. on December 5.
A Barefoot Movement Christmas will include renditions of everything from “Run Run Rudolph” by Chuck Berry to “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas” by Perry Como and emotional takes on the season’s sweetest songs such as “Oh Holy Night “and” Hark The Herald Angels Sing. “
An added bonus to the evening will be the participation of members of the Effingham Community Orchestra on a few selected songs.
The theater plans to operate at 50% of its capacity and the buffer seats will be calculated in the seating plan.
The Barefoot Movement is a sincere and energetic acoustic group from Nashville. All the worries and frustrations in the world melt away as this bluegrass group brings listeners back to a simpler place and time.
The “movement” consists of singer-songwriter and fiddler Noah Wall, mandolinist Tommy Norris, guitarist and vocalist Alex Conerly, and Katie Blomarz on double bass.
The show is funded in part by a performing arts tour grant the theater received from South Arts. Atlanta-based South Arts is a regional, non-profit arts organization that empowers artists, organizations, and communities and improves access to arts and culture.
Guests are encouraged to wear face masks and tickets can be purchased online prior to arrival. The balcony is open to help with social distancing.
