Winter Song

Live At The Tower!
December 28 and 29 at 7:30 pm.
Reserved seating, doors open at 7 pm.

The safety of Tower patrons, staff, volunteers and performers is of paramount importance. With continuing COVID-19 cases and illness, plus evolving industry norms and best practices, the Tower Theatre now requires proof of full vaccination for entry to all performances. Those not fully vaccinated, ages 12 and up, must show proof of a negative result from an approved COVID test taken within 72 hours of the performance. “Fully vaccinated” means receiving the final vaccination dose of Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson at least 14 days before the performance date. All patrons need to provide this information as a condition of entry. Based on Oregon mandates, mask wearing is also required inside the venue by everyone 5 and up, regardless of vaccination status.

These protocols are subject to review and change according to federal, state and county recommendations and guidelines.

​"This show is like comfort food — warm, nourishing, and just exactly what you want on a cold winter’s night.” —BroadwayWorld

Winter Song is a collection of beloved tunes and tales that celebrate winter and all it represents: love, family, solitude, renewal and warmth. Music, our stories, and your shared experiences come together in this cozy celebration of winter. 

There’s a running theme of “home” throughout the collection of songs. What does home mean to you, where is home, how do you get home? We invite you tonight to settle in, remember, cherish, and let the feelings of nostalgia and new days ahead wash over you.
