From WWII Christmas memories to an audience sing-along, the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts is bringing a full line-up of holiday performances to the stage in Franklin this month. 

Overlook Theatre Company will present “Christmas Memories: Postcards from the USO” at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7 and 8, and at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 9. A lively cast of talented actors, singers and musicians will take a trip back to a celebrate Christmas, World War II style. Festive music, Hollywood stars and side-splitting comedy honoring and cheering soldiers will remind audiences there is no place like home for the holidays. Tickets are $13 each.

There will be an old-fashioned Christmas carol sing-a-long at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13. Friends and family of the theatre will enjoy sounds of the season as they echo throughout the auditorium, reminding them of their most cherished Christmas memories and traditions. Tickets are $7.

• Jim Brickman, the best-selling piano artist of all time, will be in concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
