The Sunrise Theater is proud to present
Murphy Family Christmas Concert
In what has become a treasured Sandhills tradition, local musician Paul Murphy and his unbelievably talented family will return to the Sunrise Theater this holiday season. Performing together for the 7th year now, the Murphy Family continues to delight young and old alike with their unique mix of jazz, American popular standards, and gospel influenced Christmas arrangements.
The family patriarch is seasoned performer Paul Murphy, who notably performed for 31 Christmases at the Pinehurst Hotel. His wife, Sharon Murphy, is known for bringing incredible vocals to the Sunrise stage. All four of their children- Kent, Drake, Anna, and Greene- bring an extraordinary array of musical skills to the table. Drake Murphy is the 2016 winner of Best Rock Male at the Carolina Music Awards. He plays at least 12 instruments, and also mixes and produces all his own music. Anna Elizabeth Murphy is a multi-talented triple threat: actress, musician, and dancer. Rounding out this spectacular lineup are Paul’s brother, Robert Murphy, Jr. and nephew, Gary Brown. Together, the Murphy Family puts on an unforgettable show that celebrates music, family, and the true spirit of Christmas.
In an effort to accommodate those patrons who have difficulty driving at night, the Sunrise hosts this very special event on a Sunday matinee. It is hoped that this will make it easier for everyone to experience this family-friendly musical treat.
This year’s show will be on Sunday, December 9, at 3:00PM. General Admission tickets are $18, Children 12 & Under are $15, and VIP (seating in the first 6 rows) tickets are $22. Tickets can be purchased online at www.sunrisetheater.com or by calling 910-692-3611. They will also be available at the door. The Sunrise Theater is located at 250 NW Broad Street in downtown Southern Pines.
