Turning Stone continues its series of huge entertainment announcements and adds Kristin Chenoweth to its legendary entertainment lineup. Chenoweth will perform her holiday show “A Holiday Evening and More!” in the Turning Stone Event Center on November 19.

Oneida Indian Nation Homelands (August 7, 2023) – Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth will perform her holiday show “A Holiday Evening and More!” at Turning Stone on Sunday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m.

Chenoweth’s career spans film, television, voiceover and stage. In 2015, Chenoweth received a coveted star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2009, she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in “Pushing Daisies.” In 1999, she won a Tony Award for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” and she was also nominated for her original role of Glinda the Good Witch in “Wicked” in 2004. Chenoweth has been nominated for two Emmy Awards and for a People’s Choice Award for her role on “Glee.” In 2009, she wrote an upliftingly candid, comedic chronicle of her life so far, “A Little Bit Wicked,” which debuted on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best Seller List.

Chenoweth recently teamed up with Kenny Ortega and Monarch Media Team to produce the docuseries, “1300 Miles to Broadway”, inspired by her theatre program, Broadway Bootcamp. The “1300 Miles to Broadway” series follows 8th – 12th graders as they navigate the world of performing arts through master classes in acting, singing, and dancing as they prepare for a future as performers and artists. Chenoweth also recently co-starred in Apple TV+’s acclaimed musical-comedy series “Schmigadoon!” alongside Cecily Strong, Keegan-Michael Key and Ariana DeBose. “Schmigadoon!” has recently announced a season 2. For her role as Mildred Layton, Chenoweth received a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

Last year, Chenoweth released her latest Holiday/Christmas album “HAPPINESS is…Christmas!.” Filled with holiday classics both old and new, it starts off with a Christmas adaptation of the Peanuts favorite “Happiness Is..” appropriately moving into “Christmastime.” The 12-song set shows Chenoweth in a festive but classy light as she rings in the best time of year.

Chenoweth was seen starring alongside Stephan James and JK Simmons in the STXfilms sports drama “National Champions.”  Previously in 2020, Chenoweth starred in the Netflix film “Holidate,” voiced the character Daisy in the HBO Max film “The Witches,” and hosted the Food Network competition series “Candy Land.”

In 2019, Chenoweth starred alongside Scott Wolf in the holiday film “A Christmas Love Story,” which premiered on Hallmark Channel. Along with the holiday season, Chenoweth released a stand-alone Holiday e-single titled “White Christmas.” Chenoweth also released her album “For The Girls,” debuting at #3 on the Current Pop Albums chart and #11 on the Billboard Top Albums chart. The album is a heartfelt tribute to the great female singers throughout history, particularly some of Chenoweth’s heroes and friends. Guest artists include Ariana Grande, Dolly Parton, Jennifer Hudson and Reba McEntire. The album includes Chenoweth’s personally charged interpretations of classic songs identified with such iconic artists as Barbra Streisand, Lesley Gore, Linda Ronstadt, Dinah Washington, Dolly Parton, and more. To celebrate the release of her new album “For The Girls,” Chenoweth returned to the Broadway stage in November 2019, for an eight-performance concert engagement at the Nederlander Theatre.

Chenoweth has performed to sold-out audiences across the world, including performances at Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall. Chenoweth released “The Art of Elegance,” her album of American Songbook classics via Concord Records.  The album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Current Jazz and Traditional Jazz charts, and #1 on Amazon’s Vocal Pop chart. Chenoweth also returned to the stage in her limited engagement MY LOVE LETTER TO BROADWAY, at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, receiving rave reviews. In 2014, she released a CD and DVD of her own live concert performance, “Kristin Chenoweth: Coming Home.” Additionally, Chenoweth performed with iconic The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra in their annual Christmas concert. The concert aired on PBS and BYUtv in December 2019.
