With the Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater closed to live audiences due to the governor’s executive order greatly limiting in-person crowd sizes, the theater’s very popular annual “A Robeson County Christmas Show” will temporarily be transformed into a virtual streaming link option to be purchased and viewed from the cozy comfort of your home.
Watching A Robeson County Christmas Show Virtual Special at home will be reminiscent of “old school” television Christmas specials. It will include a mix of new performances and top rated selections from last year’s edition. Featured artists recorded on the theater’s stage will also include Lakota John, Alexis Jones and Kendrix Singletary!
This year, our annual heart-warming holiday musical revue will be available through the theater’s etix ticketing platform for $15, and will be valid for the entire purchased date (you can view the special on demand during the 24-hour window, after which it disappears), December 18, 19, 20 and 25. There will be a link to view the stream in your ticket purchase confirmation email. An email address is needed to receive the streaming link. Streaming Links can be purchased through the theater’s web site at https://www.etix.com/…/carolina-civic-center-historic… or by phone, 1:00pm-5:30pm weekdays at 910.738.4339.
The annual Christmas show, now in its ninth year, has become one of the region’s most popular holiday traditions, with 10 performances selling out last year. To continue this community spirit, the theater’s supporters and fans are encouraged to take photos of themselves, families and pets in front of their Christmas decorations (in holiday-themed sweaters and pajamas, if the spirit so moves) and post or tag the Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater on Facebook.
Ticket purchasers will be entered into a $50 gift card drawing announced at the conclusion of each show on our Facebook platform.
Virtual Concert January 30, 7:00pm - 10:00pm

The Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater, located in downtown Lumberton, NC, is presenting two upcoming virtual concerts that have been pre-taped on its stage while the theater is closed to in-person audiences due to COVID-19 social gathering restrictions. These performances were originally scheduled as part of its 2020-21 season, and continue the theater’s commitment to programming during the ongoing pandemic and its related audience restrictions for performance centers.
The next concert is by the all-female bluegrass group Sweet Potato Pie and premieres Thanksgiving evening. It is conducted in partnership with the Robeson County Arts Council as part of its annual Bluegrass on the Blackwater series. This performance was filmed on the stage at The Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater.
These virtual performances are premiering on the theater’s Facebook page at “Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater” and subsequently are shared on its web site at www.carolinaciviccenter.com. The theater’s previous “Spotlight on Local Talent” Performance Series (eight installments) also can be viewed on its web site. This performance is partially underwritten by a grant from the Robeson County Arts Council and the North Carolina Arts Council.
Sweet Potato Pie has been entertaining audiences for over a decade with their classy blend of Americana, Bluegrass, Country and Gospel music mixed together in a style they call “sweetgrass.” Radio and TV are well acquainted with their “angelic” vocals from appearances on PBS, the Food Network and worldwide radio broadcasts. Hailed as the “Lennon Sisters of Bluegrass,” their show revolves around their beautiful three-part harmonies, hard driving instrumentals and down home humor. With classic songs from Patsy Cline, Bill Monroe, The Judds and many more along with their chart topping original songs, you are in for a sensational night of family entertainment.
While the concert is free, a donation link will be available to help support artist fees and production costs.
