A Very Electric Christmas
It’s an electroluminescent Christmas!
Lightwire Theater’s electroluminescent puppetry is back by popular demand. This captivating and magical tale of adventure and friendship centers around a young bird named Max who brings new meaning to “coming home for the holidays.”
Performed in complete darkness, Nutcracker soldiers with candy-canes, naughty rats and an electric Christmas tree are surrounded by glow worms, dancing flowers and other creatures that light up the stage.
A Very Electric Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to bring families together and start a new holiday tradition. Audiences will enjoy the timeless Christmas classics from Nat King Cole, Tchaikovsky, Mariah Carey and, of course, a few surprises along the way.
A Very Electric Christmas is presented by Alaska Junior Theater.
Runs approximately 1 hour without intermission.
BABIES — Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN — Recommended for ages 5 and older.
Disruptive patrons of any age will be expected to exit the show.
Milk & Cookies Reception: Join AJT for a Milk & Cookies Reception afterward on stage. There will be cookies, milk, and a Cakewalk with lots of winnable prizes to make your little ones happy. While you and your family are enjoying your milk and cookies, cast members will be available during the reception for pictures and questions.

All levels of the theatres in the Center have wheelchair-and scooter-accessible locations where patrons can remain in their wheelchairs/scooters or transfer to portable theater seats. Select seats labeled "W" to purchase these seats.
Scooters cannot be placed in the aisles due to the Center's evacuation plan. Patrons are welcome to transfer to a Center transport wheelchair in the lobby to gain access to permanent seat locations. Devices will be stored in the lobbies.
Assistive Listening Devices - Sound from the stage is broadcast directly to you by our in-house listening system (Listen Technologies LR-52000-072). This system has a standard 3.5mm output jack, so you can use your own headset or one of our stereo headsets. A limited number of T-coil compatible loop lanyards are also available. Listening devices are kept at the House Manager's station in the lobby prior to and during performances. This service is free of charge, however a deposit or ID is required.
