A Seussified Christmas Carol
Gaslight Theatre presents A Seussified Christmas Carol Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday and 2 pm, admission is $18 for adults, $15 for military and $8 for students.
A whimsical reinvention of Dickens' most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhymed couplets. With zoot fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with -- if he ever had his way with the story. A fun-filled Family Adventure telling the original Dickens' tale of redemption and joy!
Star of Bethlehem
The Mackie Planetarium on the NOC-Enid campus will present two showings of the Star of Bethlehem on Thursday at 6 pm and 7:30 pm. The show is titled: "The Heavens Declare the Glory of God: Psalm 19:1."
Visitors will see what the sky over Babylon looked like to the Wise Men 2,000 years ago. We will show how planetary orbits and some complex mathematics combined with the alignments of the stars alerted the Persians in Babylon to events that had been prophesized by Daniel 500 years before. The planetarium will show how events in the night sky guided the Wise Men to Bethlehem. We will show how the sky and the Star appeared over Bethlehem as seen from Jerusalem on that first Christmas morning. There is no admission charge, but they will accept donations of food for Loaves & Fishes.
The 31st annual Living Drive Through Nativity is Friday-Sunday at the First Church of the Nazarene. Guests drive through a pathway of lights and witness first hand the story of Christmas as portrayed in 10 different Scenes.
