MyNorth Tickets Minute: A Christmas Story Musical, May Erlewine, It’s a Wonderful Live

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

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

12/02 – 12/11 | A Christmas Story, the Musical

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 | May Erlewine – The Little Things

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 | It’s a Wonderful Life

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.
