Hotel Modera’s Favorite Holiday Shows in Portland

The holidays wouldn’t feel the same without shows like the Nutcracker or Sherlock Holmes! Here’s a list of Hotel Modera‘s favorites happening in the month of December.

A Holiday Revue

When: Saturday, December 10th – Thursday, December 22nd
Where: Keller Auditorium
Address: 222 Southwest Clay Street, Portland, OR 97201

…splashed with holiday cheer and served up with a twist. Slip into something saucy and join Susannah Mars, Richard Bower and the OBT dancers for an evening of effervescent delights. Artistic Director Christopher Stowell will be mixing it up this year, swirling past favorites with fresh confections in an evening the Oregonian called, “a supper-club pleasure” in a “smashing setting.” Back by popular demand, this year’s Holiday Revue returns with even more dance numbers and jazzy tunes!


The Nutcracker

When: Saturday, December 10th – Saturday, December 24th
Where: Keller Auditorium
Address: 222 Southwest Clay Street, Portland, OR 97201

…awakening to the magic of the season. Light the fire in a child’s heart (and spark your own childhood wonder) with this beloved trip into a land where toy soldiers fight rat armies, snowflakes come dancing to life and the sugarplum fairy presides over it all with the wave of a wand. Each year George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker sets the season a-sparkle, creating memories your family will cherish forever. This year seven performances will feature the full OBT Orchestra.


Sherlock Holmes & Case of the Christmas Carol

When: Tuesday, November 15th – Saturday, December 24th
Where: Artists Repertory Theatre
Address: 1515 Southwest Morrison Street, Portland, OR 97205

Literature’s favorite quirky inquisitor is infused with the spirit of a crotchety Ebenezer Scrooge in an unusual holiday show crafted by Seattle veteran playwright John Longenbaugh.  After failed attempts by Dr. Watson to cheer Holmes into celebrating the holiday season, the unrepentant, ill-tempered detective is forced to deduce the facts and solve the most important mystery of his life – past, present and future. The play premiered at Taproot Theatre Company in Seattle and this is its second production nationally.


In Good Company

When: Friday, December 9th – Saturday, December 17th
Where: Northwest Dance Project
Address: 833 N Shaver St, Portland, OR 97227

The Northwest Dance Project is putting a special spin on their popular annual holiday show! Six members of their award-winning company will premiere new contemporary dance works set on their fellow dancers and inspired by the sounds found on vintage vinyl records which DJ Anjali will spin during the shows. A fun and festive show for the entire family. Add warm wassail, Voodoo Doughnuts and surprize balloons and you have a hip holiday happening!
