How to spend the holidays

Your road map to arts and entertainment events through the end of the year

November 18, 2012

Advertisement

Here at Lawrence.com, Santa’s been making a list — and checking it twice — of local happenings to get you in the holiday spirit.

Caroling children? Gingerbread houses? Nativities? Vespers recitals? Unique handmade gifts? The Nutcracker ballet with a Kansas twist? Santa look-alikes flocking through downtown streets and bars?

Check — to all of those, and many others.

Our Holiday Arts Guide features happenings for every day from the day after Thanksgiving, when Santa himself is expected to make an appearance on Massachusetts Street, through the end of the year.

On some days, there are well over a dozen holiday performances, activities and shopping opportunities.

Go ahead, try to be a scrooge. But we’re warning you, that’s going to be tough.

Downtown Holiday Lighting and Santa Rescue

At 5:30 p.m. Friday, when the mayor of Lawrence pulls the magic switch, every tree on Massachusetts Street will light up and Santa will arrive for a visit to Lawrence.

Lawrence emergency crews will be on hand, in case Santa needs help from their ladder truck to get down from the rooftop of Weaver’s Department Store to take gift requests from children on the ground.

The hub of the annual Downtown Lawrence Holiday Lighting Ceremony will be at Ninth and Massachusetts streets. Entertainment begins at 5 p.m.

Bizarre Bazaar

A more-bizarre-than-average bazaar, Lawrence’s annual Bizarre Bazaar will feature unique and unusual art from more than 100 artists and crafters.

The event is planned for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St.

In addition to artists and crafters selling their work, the event will include a bake sale and live music.

"A Kansas Nutcracker"

"A Kansas Nutcracker"

'A Kansas Nutcracker'

Once again, the Lawrence Arts Center will showcase its early Kansas version of a classic Christmastime ballet.

“A Kansas Nutcracker” opens Dec. 7 at the Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St.

Set in 1861, Kansas’ first year of statehood, “A Kansas Nutcracker” will feature more than 130 dancers and actors — both students and professionals — and the 13-piece Free State Liberation Orchestra.

The Arts Center promises a show that infuses Clara’s surreal ballet dreams with Kansas’ abolition, suffrage and temperance politics, oversized personalities, unpredictable weather, Plains landscape and the Civil War. The political intensity of the time paved the way for Quantrill’s Raid two years later.

Performances are planned for 7 p.m. Dec. 7 and 8; 2 p.m. Dec. 9; 7 p.m. Dec. 14; 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dec. 15; and 2 p.m. Dec. 16.

“A Kansas Nutcracker” features artistic direction and choreography by Deb Bettinger, script and stage direction by Ric Averill, and orchestration and conducting by Jeff Dearinger.

Tickets are $19 for adults, $16 for seniors or $13 for students. Purchase tickets online at lawrenceartscenter.org or by calling 843-2787.

I spend the holidays giving back to those in the community. I run His Hands Clothing Closet Thrift Store. A non profit who has a mission of offering quality used and new items in a storefront to help those who could use to save money on their purchases. Offering only quality clothing,shoes, coats, jewelry, purses. We have most sizes for the whole family. Each year we sponsor local families through the help of local businesses and private citizens who are just willing to share the "true meaning" of Christmas, helping those in need. We collect new unwrapped toys for girls and boys from birth to age 18 yrs to give them presents, ask for gift cards and grocer cards to provide the meal and we give clothing gift cards to His Hands so the families can come in and get great clothing. We could use the help of the folks in Douglas COunty. I have tried countless times to get broader ads and more local funding. So far our boxes are EMPTY, we could sure use the help. We are in downtown Eudora 727 Main St. 690-7220, if your interested in donating to our cause feel free to check us out on facebook or call or drop by. Local families would sure appreciate this.
