Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story  
History Theatre Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story
 
Rock out to the golden oldies when History Theatre brings back its popular, award-winning production of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story. This hit show follows Holly's childhood in Texas, his musical beginnings with the group of high school friends who later gained fame as the Crickets, his meteoric rise to fame and his tragic early death -- all set to a soundtrack of some of rock 'n' roll's biggest hits, including Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue," Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba," the Big Bopper's "Chantilly Lace" and many more. Part biography, part rock 'n' roll concert, this musical is a joyous celebration of the life and music of one of America's most beloved musicians (played by Nicholas Freeman).
   
A Christmas Carol  
Guthrie Theatre A Christmas Carol
 
This year marks the 40th annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, the perennial favorite that received a new adaptation by Crispin Whittell in 2010 and continues the Guthrie’s holiday tradition for families across the region. Now is the time to experience this cherished production with your loved ones! A miserly and miserable man, Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with a “bah humbug,” until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. Through a restless night, the spirits show him happy memories from his past, cruel realities from the present and the grim future should he continue his cantankerous ways.
   
The Cocktail Hour  
Guthrie Theatre The Cocktail Hour
 
When your family is in town for the holidays, we’ve got the perfect way to toast the season! With delightfully witty wordplay, A.R. Gurney’s The Cocktail Hour is a heartfelt comedy of manners that pits artistic pursuit against family loyalty. It’s the 1970s, and John arrives for dinner at his parents’ home carrying the script of his soon-to-be produced play depicting his uptight, upper-crust WASP family. Just as the martinis begin to flow, so do the revelations and recriminations – both funny and poignant. Directed by Maria Aitken (Broadway’s The 39 Steps), The Cocktail Hour is the perfect alternative holiday entertainment.
   
A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol  
DHM Productions, Inc. at New Century Theatre A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol
 
A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol is one part Fargo (minus the woodchipper) and one part A Christmas Carol shaken vigorously and served over ice. It's Christmas Eve in Bunyan Bay, Minn., and cantankerous bar owner Gunner storms out of an argument with his wife and takes to the lake on his snowmobile. Next thing you know ... crash! The ice breaks and Gunner plunges through. After he's rescued, a coma-ridden Gunner journeys to a dream world full of surprises, not the least of which is a visit from the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future -- all played by folk legend Sven Yorgensen. Gunner's unusual journey gets a fittingly rare soundtrack, with original songs like "Gramma Cut the Christmas Cheese," "The Wheel is Turnin' but the Hamster Is Dead" and "I Love You More Than Football."
