One of my favorite Christmas stories is "A Christmas Carol." Whether it's in musical form, Muppet form or the comedic genius of Bill Murray, A Christmas Carol is a great story of Christmas Spirit.

The Zeiterion welcomes back the Nebraska Theatre Caravan this weekend for their musical production of Charles Dickens' classic story. You can catch a matinee or evening showing of A Christmas Carol.

Another holiday favorite is the Christmas Celtic Sojourn.  Seats for this show will soon be unavailable.  A Christmas Celtic Sojourn with Brian O’Donovan is now in its second decade and has established itself as a holiday tradition gem throughout New England. They played to a packed house in 2011 and are now back, on track to do the same!

And finally, The NBSO’s Family Holiday Pops Concert is happening on December 20, 2014. This concert is a Southcoast favorite tradition. Hear your favorite Christmas classics performed by a great orchestra for a magical show! Featured performers include soprano Patrice Tiedemann, the New Bedford Symphony Youth Orchestra and the Showstoppers performing arts troupe.
