Although the spring show is the main event as far as members of homegrown song-and-dance troupe Vaud-Villities are concerned, having their own venue has allowed for creation of an annual holiday show.

"It consists of singing and dancing ensemble members," said Steve Darke, current cast president for the organization that held its 75th anniversary show in April.

Russ Coffman once again is in the director's chair for "City Sidewalks," which runs Thursday, Dec. 7, through Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Northland Performing Arts Center, 4411 Tamarack Blvd. in Columbus.

"We would not be in that position if we weren't in this building," Coffman said. "It's a much more year-round organization now."

Showtimes for "City Sidewalks" are 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7; a matinee for senior citizens at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 8; 8 p.m. Dec. 9; and 2:30 p.m. Dec. 10, according to Coffman.

Tickets cost $20 each or $15 for senior citizens and groups at or by calling 614-262-7469.

"City Sidewalks" will feature the "Rudolph Kick Line," Darke said.

"It's a favorite," he said. "It's like a Rockettes kick line, and they're dressed like reindeer."

The holiday show lasts about an hour, he said, just a little shorter than the spring performance.

"City Sidewalks" includes 35 children in the cast performing songs by Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, Darke said.

"We're trying to appeal to multiple generations," he said.

"It just gets you in the holiday spirit," Courtney Deck, dance coordinator for the holiday show, said of the six weeks of rehearsals. "It makes you want to get your tree up and get your presents."
