Hylton Planetarium’s presentation of “Laser Holidays” at Hylton High School. Enjoy a perfect blend of traditional holiday favorites mixed with some modern-day holiday tunes, all set to laser lights for a holiday experience unlike any other!

Planetarium Director Tony Kilgore will offer a short tour of the winter sky followed by the story of “The Alien Who Stole Christmas!” for his younger guests. Join jolly old Santa and a concerned alien, Mr. Freep, as they explore the solar system's planets and meet their fictitious inhabitants, while assisting them with their Christmas Eve needs. For others, “Star of Bethlehem,” is the show to learn about the story of a celestial event occurring near Christmas.

Tickets are $10 for all shows (cash only). Advance tickets go on sale December 1 for all shows and can be purchased at the Hylton High School Planetarium box office from 8 a.m.–4 p.m. Monday–Friday or on the day of the show at the planetarium box office starting 30 minutes before the first showing. Children 3 or younger may sit on a parent or guardian lap and do not require a ticket.

Seating is limited to 65 for each show, so get your tickets early! Visit the Planetarium’s website for more information.
