But it seems that everybody, including Santa Claus and the class bully, are determined to frustrate his holiday wish. “A Christmas Story” runs weekends from December 1 to Sunday the 17th, Powerhouse Theatre, Waveny Park, New Canaan, CT: Fridays:      Dec 1, 8, 15 @ 7pm; Dec 16@ 2 pm Saturdays: Dec 2, 9 @ 7 pm; Dec 16 @ 2 pm Sundays:    Dec 3, 10, 17 @ 2pm Get tickets and info at TPNC.ORG  Group discounts: The Town Players of New Canaan offers a 10% discount to groups of 10 or more to one performance.

A Very Creole Christmas with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band at the Ridgefield Playhouse

The Ridgefield Playhouse 80 East Ridge, Ridgefield

Enjoy a tasting from Litchfield Distillery before the show. Celebrate the season as the Preservation Hall Jazz Band returns with the Creole Christmas concert series. Join as the band performs New Orleans classics as well as some of our best-loved holiday selections with a twist. Throughout history, New Orleans has been a place where sounds and cultures from around the world converge, mingle, resurface, and transform. Nobody embodies that idea more than the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, which has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years. Their recent releases redefine modern New Orleans music by tapping into sonic elements that stretch back to the city’s Afro-Cuban roots and reach forward to cutting-edge artists like Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello, and Arcade Fire. Don’t miss this septet’s return to the Playhouse stage with their Creole Christmas concert series.
