Local Entertainment: Dec. 8-15 (12/10/16)
TOP PICKS 1. Holiday concerts are in full swing this week. One of the most popular national attractions returns to the area as the Trans-Siberian Orchestra performs at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver in Tulsa, Okla. The ensemble performs in Kansas City on Saturday and in St. Louis on Sunday. No one does Christmas music quite like the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. 2. If you enjoy a big production of Handel's "Messiah," you'll find one of the best in Kansas City this week. The Kansas City Symphony and Chorus and soloists play Handel's "Messiah" at 7 p.m. on Thursday, 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Kauffman Center, 1601 Broadway. Every seat in Helzberg Hall has great acoustics. The high seats are steep but every place offers a good view and hearing. 3. If you like a little less reverent take on Christmas, there's always Jean Shepherd's "A Christmas Story," presented in a stage version by Springfield Little Theater at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m Saturday and Sunday, 7:30 p.m. Dec. 8 with more shows through next weekend at the Landers Theater, 311 E. Walnut. If you remember Christmas in the suburbs in the 1950s, Ralphie and his family will take you right back to the swirling emotions of childhood and the holidays.
