All-New Charleston Christmas Special Takes the CMH Stage for Eleven Shows in December



Long-time producers and performers Brad and Jennifer Moranz have created a brand-new holiday spectacular at the Charleston Music Hall. Some of the country’s most talented singers, dancers, and musicians will perform 11 shows from December 13th to December 22nd.

“This cast is nothing short of phenomenal – truly some of the best voices I have ever heard on one stage,” Brad Moranz said. “There are so many breathtaking moments in this show, I lose count.”

Performing in the Charleston Christmas Special for the first time is baritone Nathaniel Hackman, who has been seen on Broadway in Les Misérables and Paint Your Wagon. Hackman will be joined by teenage singing sensation Jenna Flaherty to perform a duet of “How Great Thou Art.”

Also new to the cast this year is Lakieta Bagwell-Graves. Bagwell-Graves will perform “White Christmas” and “Don’t Save it All for Christmas Day.”

“If you close your eyes, you will swear you are listening to Celine Dion,” Moranz said. “She’s incredible.”

Matthew Billman – whose voice has been compared to Josh Groban – returns to the show this year to sing “Joy to the World.” He also joins Bagwell-Graves for a duet of “The Prayer.”

Another newcomer is Melissa Van Pelt. She will join Bagwell-Graves in a beautiful rendition of “Do You Hear What I Hear,” along with a performance of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Tenor Tim McManus returns to the “Christmas Special” after a two-year run performing in Pigeon Forge. McManus will perform the gospel favorite “This Little Light.”

Singing ventriloquist Michael Minor, the sultry and soulful Tiffany Parker, and violinist James Anderson will also be a part of this year’s show.

Of course, no Moranz Entertainment show is complete without comedy sketches and dance numbers featuring Brad and Jennifer Moranz.
