Ever since it premiered on NBC on Christmas Eve 1951, Amahl & the Night Visitors has become one of the most frequently performed holiday operas in the world, far surpassing The Flying Elf Man, Wagner's epic eight-opera cycle chronicling the life of Santa. Boise mezzo-soprano Tiffany Calas stars in the one-act opera, which tells the story of a crippled boy who meets the Magi on their way to visit the birth site of Jesus. Showtimes are at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, and Sunday, Dec. 5, and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 4.

For 12 years, Prairie Dog Productions has tickled funny bones both young and old with original scripts that parody pop culture and classical stories. Just in time for Halloween, season opener Vampire vs. Wolfman skewers the vampire mania that’s reared its fanged head over the past few years. Local talent instills the yuletide values of generosity and humane reindeer ownership in Scooge…Older, but Miser! before jabbing superhero stories in the vividly costumed Gnat Man!. With casual cabaret seating, families can snag seats together to enjoy the ageless appeal and peroxide-squirting pistol of international super spy James Blonde.

Heirloom's unlimited monthly pass provides aspiring toe-tappers with access to any of its 10 weekly dance classes and five nights of open ballroom dance. The hour-long lessons can be taken as often as necessary to polish and perfect moves. Rather than rioting, zoot-suit wearers can peacefully demonstrate during Tuesday's Swing Night, beginning at 7 p.m. with a lindy-hop lesson, with Charleston and blues lessons following on the hour. Wednesday night is Latin Night, with sultry steppers learning salsa, bachata, and Columbian cumbia. Thursday sees the uncanny yet danceable pairing of hip-hop (7 p.m.) and Argentine tango (8 p.m.), before dissolving into a passionate, bandoneón-fueled dance-a-thon. On Saturday, whisk your dancing shoes away to a rockabilly-tinged West Coast swing class, and cruise the subsequent sock-hop for a side-stepping showdown with Brad from HR. Dance partners are not required.

Harlem Globetrotters Playing Three-on-Five Since forming in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have continued to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2014 tour, a rotating [roster](http://gr.pn/PHdb6w) of Globetrotter favorites?including three female players?takes to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard [TNT](http://gr.pn/rOe0P4) sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker [Quake](http://gr.pn/QTIGVh), whose high jump once cleared 7 feet, cruelly dashing his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Globetrotters might also present a study in contrasts with 5-foot-2 [Too Tall](http://gr.pn/PHdmPh) and 7-foot-4 [Stretch](http://gr.pn/1dYrbUt), the team?s tallest member. During each Globetrotters game, youngsters laugh along and witness the jovial jocks performing classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti. To infuse their visits with an extra shot of unpredictability, the Globetrotters also let fans in each city vote on special rules for every game; past rules have included the use of a four-point shot and the installation of a penalty box. Over the years, similar antics have followed the Globetrotters around the world, including to 122 countries and territories and all six continents on which basketballs grow naturally. The Globetrotters? extensive travels haven?t gone unnoticed: they?re one of the few teams to earn a spot in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport.
