The Ellen Eccles Theatre here will be even more jam-packed with entertainment in the weeks ahead, thanks to the announcement of three new engagements in addition to its holiday-themed Random Acts Community Performance Series.

Those additions to the theater’s schedule will bring the total number of shows slated during a three-week period starting Wednesday to 10, according to CacheARTS managing director Wendi Hassan.

The new engagements will include two events in the theater’s Resident Events series — a one-night performance by Jenny Oaks Baker & Family Four, featuring Katherine Greenfield on Dec. 16 and a two-night stand of Ryan Shupe’s Christmas Show, featuring John Chadwick and local vocalist Lindsey Kelstrom.

The third production will be a one-night appearance by the popular Bar J Wranglers on Dec. 19 as part of CacheARTS’ 2020-2021 National Touring Season.

Jenny Oaks Baker and her teenage children have performed classical crossover music throughout the United States and overseas, including guest appearances with the Utah Symphony and the Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra.

Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband is an indie rock/bluegrass ensemble founded in Ogden in the mid-1990s. The band is popular throughout the Intermountain West for its trademark genre-busting acoustic-jam sounds.
