Philadelphia's most treasured holiday musical tradition continues with the return of celebrated conductor David Charles Abell — back by popular demand because (1) he’s fabulous (2) he’s gay (3) he looks like this. As if that wasn’t enough, this year brings the special addition of vocalist Hugh Panaro, Broadway's current Phantom of the Opera! Experience the magic of the season as the POPS' present beloved tunes in exciting arrangements, with over 300 musicians, remarkable choirs, and the ever-popular audience sing-along — as well as some surprises along the way.

We're taking it over on Wednesday, December 10. We've got 20% off tickets, but only 40 spots. Join dozens of TWCers and make the Yuletide gay! Reindeer sweaters, candy cane earrings, and big red bows are welcome, if not obligatory

Want to watch the POPS with your people? Sign up as a group.

  • If you're coming with friends and want to buy all the tickets at once, simply click "Participate as an individual" and purchase as many tickets as you need. Under this option you will need to pick up all tickets for your group on the night of the performance using your ID.

  • If you’d rather buy tickets individually, click "Create a group" to make a group that you can share with your friends. You'll be seated together at the show but each of you will need to pick up your tickets individually.
