The annual Purdue Christmas Show, one of Indiana's most time-honored traditions, returns to public television for the 2013 holiday season. The PURDUE CHRISTMAS SHOW delights viewers of all ages with entertaining vocal and instrumental arrangements of holiday favorites, both traditional and modern, sacred and secular. A cast of more than 250 campus and community performers from the Purdue Varsity Glee Club, Purduettes, Purdue Bells, University Choir, Heart & Soul, All Campus & Community Chorale and the PMO Kids Choir fill the campus' 6, 000-seat Elliott Hall of Music with the sights, sounds and spirit of the holidays. This production, taped over two days in December 2012, features engaging storylines, humorous and touching theatrical moments, and elaborate sets and costumes. This year's set-list includes a jazzy version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," a Jersey Boys-style take on Chuck Berry's "Run Run Rudolph," the holiday pop tunes "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and "The Man with the Bag," and traditional carols "Silent Night" and "We Three Kings."
