By Timothy Rager/

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra's “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” returns on its winter tour at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Nov. 18 in the Erie Insurance Arena before heading out across North America.

A portion of the money from ticket sales will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwestern Pennsylvania. Tickets can be purchased at the Erie Insurance Arena box office or by phone at 814-452-4857.

This show presents the story of ”The Ghosts of Christmas Eve" and opens with a young girl who ran away from home and breaks into an abandoned vaudeville theater to escape from the cold on Christmas Eve.

As the night passes, she sees ghostly visions of the theater’s past and its workers throughout the show.
