It is no secret that the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus has become a staple in this city's holiday season.

So of course their big showcase at the Castro Theatre is back to help you ring in the most festive time of the year with song and cheer and all the ugly sweaters your heart desires.

There aren't too many Christmas shows on Christmas Eve, but the 25th Annual "Home For The Holidays" at the Castro Theatre is bucking that stereotype with another tri-show special on December 24. That's right: Three showings on Christmas Eve. The chorus is keeping it fresh with a few new compositions this year in addition to "appearances by Santa, his elves and reindeer, a 1980s nativity scene, and an ugly sweater parade thrown in just for fun!"

The SFGMC has grown past just its Christmas-y roots in the near-four decades that it has been in existence. In its 37th season, the chorus tours and holds events year-round. But its Christmas performance at the Castro is one of its most notorious--being that the evolving holiday extravaganza is in its 25th year doesn't hurt either.

Performance of the "25th Annual Home For The Holidays" will take the stage on December 24 at 5pm, 7 pm 9 pm. For information on seating please visit and for tickets please visit
