Dec 05, 2019 in "Candlelight Processional"

Chita Rivera has pulled out of the narrator line-up for the 2019 Candlelight Processional due to health reasons and will be replaced by Alton Fitzgerald White.

Part of the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, the Candlelight Processional presents the traditional story of Christmas with a 50-piece orchestra, a massed choir and a celebrity narrator. The processional is performed three times per night (5:00, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m.) during the holiday season at the America Gardens Theatre.

Here is the revised line-up:

  • Ming-Na Wen  - 11/29-12/1
  • Neil Patrick Harris – 12/2-12/5
  • Whoopi Goldberg – 12/6-12/7
  • Isabella Rossellini - 12/8-12/10
  • Alton Fitzgerald White - 12/11 - 12/12
  • Gary Sinise – 12/13-12/15
  • Pat Sajak – 12/16-12/18
  • Warwick Davis - 12/19-12/21
  • Steven Curtis Chapman – 12/22-12/24
  • Edward James Olmos – 12/25-12/26
