In order to proceed with its annual Christmas music production, "Hark Up" is going virtual.
"We've been recording and filming over the last month and everything should be ready to go soon," said Hark Up executive director Chris Hansen.
"A Virtual Hark Up Christmas" will be a combination of studio and on-location video, with narration and even snippets from performances of past years.
It's set to debut at 7:30pm Sat. Dec. 5 .
The opening segment is new. It's a parody version of "You Can't Stop the Beat," borrowed from the musical "Hairspray." "It ends up as 'You can't stop Hark Up,'" Hansen noted of its "continuous shot" video style with dancers and singers.
