Get into the spirit of the season with the 10th annual Holiday Magic performance from the Cascade Chorale and the Bend Children’s Choir. The show will cover the spectrum from classic Christmas carols and to world music. Expect to hear old standards such as “O Holy Night,” “Joy to the World,” and Handel’s “Messiah.” $14
The classic holiday tale of a girl who travels through a dreamland filled with snow queens, sugar plum fairies and epic battles between mice and toy soldiers is best performed by dancers young enough to be entranced by its magic. The Central Oregon School of Ballet presents its annual performance of The Nutcracker. $8-$22
“A Christmas Carol” is Charles Dickens’ wonderful and enduring story about kindness rekindling a heart. But now and again, the tale needs to be freshened up, like, say, as “The Grinch,” or with “Humbug,” a clever modern adaption that replaces the drab Victorian setting with Wall Street, and Ebenezer Scrooge with power-hungry female executive Eleanor. Tickets are $20 Adult/$16 Senior (60 and over)/$13 Student
December’s First Friday will be stuffed like a turkey with local artists debuting their wares and creations at shops downtown. Take, for example, recent transplant to Bend from Boston, photographer Maria Fernanda Bay. She was last week’s Source cover artist, and her work will be on display at Bishops Barbershop on Oregon Avenue during the month of December. Free
