Holiday Spectacular gives DCH patients chance to shine

More than 50 current and former patients from Driscoll Children’s Hospital Rehabilitation Services Department participated in the 13th annual Holiday Spectacular on Dec. 9.

This year’s Holiday Spectacular included “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” an excerpt from “The Nutcracker,” “In Summer”( from “Frozen” ), “Twelve Days of Christmas,” and “Drummer Boy” and “Nativity.”

The event gave patients, who otherwise may not have an opportunity to participate in a traditional holiday pageant, a chance to show their creativity. Patients rehearsed for several weeks and performed for family, friends and hospital staff. Dancers with the Corpus Christi Ballet also performed with the patients.
