“The best thing about Christmas”
Nashville-based songwriter Derek Hinckley is bringing his new musical to Utah!
“The Best Thing About Christmas” will premiere on Friday, December 10 and will continue until Saturday, December 18 on the stage of the Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center in Taylorsville. The show takes place at 7:30 p.m. each evening (except Sunday) with a morning at 4:00 p.m. each Saturday.
Derek has lived in Nashville for 13 years and has become a prolific songwriter and performer in a band with his brothers – The Hinckley Brothers.
In 2018, he decided to pursue another dream: to write and mount a full-fledged musical production.
The story is inspired by many of Hinckley’s personal experiences where the main character moves his family to Nashville with dreams of people singing his songs. But everything changes one month of December when the life of her daughter takes a tragic turn. His family rallies around him and helps him love Christmas again.
Derek said, “It truly is a dream come true to create ‘The Best Thing About Christmas’ for audiences in Utah. and the Christmas spirit to people around the world. “
