TAHLEQUAH, Okla. -- It is the most wonderful time of the year at Northeastern State University — and that means it’s time for the annual lighting of historic Seminary Hall. Lights On Seminary Hall, which is hosted by Tahlequah Mayor Jason Nichols and NSU’s First Lady, Penny Turner, will take place Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. directly in front of the main entrance to the historic Seminary Hall.

There will be performances by the Tahlequah High School Show Choir, Tahlequah Performing Arts Academy, The River City Players, NSU Brass Quintet and Tahlequah Public School’s Elementary Choirs. The special guests for the evening include NSU President Steve Turner, Miss NSU 2014 LaTasha Atcity, Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker and United Keetowah Band of Cherokee Indians Chief George Wickliffe.

Immediately following the performances, children will be invited to visit Santa’s Workshop just inside of Seminary Hall and have their photograph taken with Santa Claus. All of the good little boys and girls will also get to choose a small gift from Santa’s toy chest as well as receiving their very own commemorative ornament.

This event is produced by Northeastern’s College of Liberal Arts and the NSU Theatre Company, with additional support from the President’s Office. Please note that a limited number of Polaroid photographs will be available, so parents are certainly invited to bring their own camera to take pictures.
