Chicago’s favorite leading lady Heidi Kettenring lends her signature warmth to the timeless treasures and holiday hits of Karen Carpenter. The multi-award winner starred as Nessarose in the blockbuster musical Wicked (Broadway in Chicago), and Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast (National Tour).

A storyteller sure to stir the heart, Kettenring tenderly chronicles Carpenter’s troubles and triumphs with a familiar angelic radiance. Songs include "Close To You," "Merry Christmas Darling," "For All We Know," and "The Christmas Song.”

A.D. Player has built a stage outside and divided the lot into safely distanced boxes to accommodate groupings of 2-4 people. Guests will have the option of purchasing an empty box in which to setup your favorite lawn or camping chair from home or purchasing one of the VIP boxes with plastic folding chairs and a cocktail table provided.

Local artisans and food trucks will also be hand. Guests can choose from a selection of warm beverages on sale, or 'BYOB' their own festive libations and snacks to enjoy during the show. Face coverings will be required but only when outside of a reserved seating zone.

While the live production will end on December 23, the production will be available to stream at any time through December 31.
