Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe invites the community to ring in the holidays with its exuberant musical revue, “A Motown Christmas.” The production was created by WBTT founder and artistic director Nate Jacobs and had its world premiere in 2015, with a repeat performance in 2017. The show features some favorite traditional carols as well as many original Christmas songs written and recorded by Motown’s most celebrated artists, such as The Jackson 5, The Supremes, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye. As the WBTT theater will be getting the final touches on its extensive theater renovations, the show will be performed at the Sarasota Opera House (61 N. Pineapple Ave., Sarasota). Show dates are December 4-6 and 18-20; all performances are at 7:30 p.m. Director is Jacobs, who also performs in the production. Tickets are $15-$75 (plus applicable ticket fees); students and active duty military (ages 25 and under, with valid ID) eligible for 50% off adult ticket price. Call the Box Office (941-366-1505) or go to westcoastblacktheatre.org.
