It is time to enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas with Sally Olson as Karen Carpenter and Ned Mills as Richard Carpenter starring in the debut of Carpenters Legacy: A Christmas Portrait recreating the nostalgia and joy of the Carpenters' 1977 and 1978 Christmas television specials. The holiday show will be performed at The Modern Showrooms at Alexis Park Resort Hotel through Jan. 1, 2023.

The Carpenters did not tour with a holiday show, instead recording the two television Christmas specials, The Carpenters at Christmas (1977) and The Carpenters: A Christmas Portrait (1978).

Carpenters Legacy: A Christmas Portrait will recreate those Christmas television specials that originally aired on ABC, complete with vintage commercials. They will wear costumes that are exact replicas of what Karen and Richard Carpenter wore in their Christmas television specials.

"We are thrilled to have a Las Vegas residency at The Modern Showrooms at Alexis Park Resort Hotel, quickly becoming known as the premiere destination for classic Las Vegas entertainment. We have been performing there since July 18, and our regular show, Carpenters Legacy: A Re-creation of the 1976 UK Tour, will resume, but now is the time to debut our Christmas show officially," says Sally. "In addition to performing the Carpenters' Christmas classics, including 'Merry Christmas Darling.' For many people, the Carpenters mean Christmas. Their music is timeless, and the duo's Christmas music has a special place in the hearts of many. We love taking audiences on a trip down memory lane back to a simpler time and an old-fashioned Christmas."

The show will feature the holiday classics "Sleigh Ride," "The Christmas Song," and "Merry Christmas, Darling," as well as many of the Carpenters' greatest hits.
