  • A family celebration turns into a nightmare in Los Alamos Little Theatre’s latest production, “An Inspector Calls,” written by J.B. Priestly, directed by Iain May and produced by John Gustafson and Kate Ramsey.
    Sheila Birling (Katrina Koehler) and Gerald Croft are celebrating the news of their engagement with Sheila’s parents Arthur and Sybil (Sally Cassil). There’s drinking, toasting and joy throughout the beginning of the production, but the mood soon turns sour when a visitor appears at the Birlings’ door.

  • “I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly ... ”
    So begins the preface to Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” and so Susan Baker-Dillingham invites the community to be “humored” and “haunted” by her new ballet, which is based on the classic tale. Baker-Dillingham’s New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company will perform her original ballet “A Christmas Carol” Saturday and Sunday at the Duane Smith Auditorium.

  • A Los Alamos tradition for 44 years, the annual Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair will be from 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Los Alamos Middle School. The Los Alamos Arts Council is hosting the event.
    To keep the tradition of a pre-Thanksgiving holiday shopping spree alive, the LAAC has lined up more than 100 artists from across New Mexico. As in past years, jewelry, pottery, painting, metal work, fabric arts and photography will be among the highlights, as well as a wide range of holiday-oriented crafts.
    New artists and longtime exhibitors will be on hand. Kathy Hjeresen,  who sells handmade jewelry and woodworker Adrian Martinez, both fair regulars, will return this year.
