Consider yourself at home with this beloved Tony Award-winning musical based on Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. Filled with timeless songs, delightful dancing and memorable characters, it's a wonderful holiday treat for the family.

Irving Berlin's White Christmas is at the Schuster. It is direct from Broadway and I saw it Tuesday and what a show! It is a merry and bright theatrical experience for everyone.

If you have a used musical instrument bring it to the PNC 2nd Street Market on Saturday 9 a.m.-2 p.m. The Dayton Philharmonic Volunteer Association is sponsoring an instrument donation drive to give to the Dayton Public Schools. Instruments will be repaired, if needed.
