Joyful, a Karamu Holiday Celebration

Thursday, December 10, 2020 - Sunday, January 10, 2021

A Special Karamu Holiday Celebration

Bringing together some of the season's favorite songs, new and old, and with festive songs and styles from around the world, Karamu House brings an hour of song and dance into your living room this holiday season! 

While the doors to our theatre remain closed to the public, Karamu House is still a place of joyful gathering. So, this year, Karamu brings that place of joyful gathering into your homes, instead.

You're invited to unplug from social media, turn off the news, and just sit back and relax – and let Karamu House's talented singers, dancers and performers bring you joy with a special concert that celebrates this festive time of year. 


NOW AVAILABLE, you can watch Joyful with your entire household. Each ticket ($24.99) gives you the opportunity to stream Joyful on your favorite device, at any time of the day, in the comfort of your own home. Once started, you'll have 48 hours to finish watching the show. It's that simple. Joyful will be available for access until January 9, 2021.


Interested in gifting a ticket to Joyful? Purchase a gift card, and we'll take care of the rest.
