With December here this weekend, it’s officially time to celebrate the holidays in .

Kalin Franks has the details on three fun events happening in our area.

12/02 – 12/11 |

Presented by the Manistee Civic Players at the Ramsdell from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.

A musical version of the film, A Christmas Story. This beloved Christmas classic takes place in 1940s Indiana and focuses on the young boy named Ralphie and his Christmas wish to own a Red Ryder BB Gun.

12/03 |

Brought to you by Porterhouse Presents at the Historic Barns Park from 6:30 – 10 p.m.

It’s the holiday season and that brings about all kinds of feelings. Whether you’re feeling fuzzy or feeling frazzled, May Erlewine has some songs to groove your soul. Tickets are $25 for Tier 1 (first 12 rows) and $15 for Tier 2. All seats are reserved. Ticket prices will rise at the door. There will be an option on the online ticketing page to RSVP for a delicious paella dinner with a yummy flan dessert.

12/09 |

Presented by Little Traverse Civic Players at the Crooked Tree Center for the Arts from 8-10 p.m.

Adapted by Doug Rand, from the screenplay by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Frank Capra, and Jo Swerling.

This faithful, fast-moving stage adaptation of the classic film features fluid scene changes, reasonable set requirements, and scores of beefy roles, particularly for women. It’s not only a joyful Christmas tale — it’s the gorgeous love story of George and Mary Bailey, a vivid portrait of the Greatest Generation, a descent into the darkest hour of a man trapped by circumstance, and a powerful meditation on what makes a meaningful life.
