BEHOLD

Our beloved Christmas event returns in person to Fayetteville.

Tickets are Pay What You Can starting at $10.

Bringing together the energy and music of Sweet Tea’s pre-show, Behold leaves audiences soaring with a heartfelt holiday celebration.

Behold is hosted by Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Fayetteville and performs at 7pm, on December 2-4, & 9-11.

Entering its 10th Anniversary year, Sweet Tea Shakespeare has built its reputation on presenting plays unconventionally, with a live radio show-style concert before the play starts, live music throughout the show, and simple, elemental, interactive staging. The concert has become one of Fayetteville’s best-kept secrets that sends hearts soaring into the holiday season. Based on music from Andrew Peterson’s Behold the Lamb of God, the Oh Hellos, and a variety of other artists, Behold leans heavily on the Gospel and folk traditions with a full band.

The event will offer holiday treats for purchase, including beer, wine, light snacks, and more.
