“A Christmas Story” at Hickory Community Theatre. The only thing Ralphie Parker hopes to find under the tree is an Official Red Ryder Range Model Air Rifle.

Based upon the classic motion picture, this play is a holiday treat everyone can enjoy—that is, until someone shoots their eye out. December 1-16, 2012. Call (828) 327-3855.

Foothills Performing Arts presents Doug Rand’s “It’s A Wonderful Life” at the J.E. Broyhill Civic Center. The saga of George Bailey, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him, by showing him, what the world would have been like had he never been born. His has been after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation has all your favorite characters: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. A celebration of the faith of the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family and community will be rewarded.
