The Tony Award-winning McCarter Theatre produces a bevy of captivating plays each year, often staging incendiary interpretations of traditional works and contemporary classics. This year's production of A Christmas Carol marks the McCarter's 30th incarnation of Dickinson's tale since its introduction to the theatre's season in 1980. The production will be performed in the 75-year-old, recently restored Matthews Theatre auditorium. Director Michael Unger gifts audiences with a heartfelt tale of Ebenezer's redemption guaranteed to cure mild to moderate cases of Scroogedom and Santaclaustrophobia.
Inside a vibrantly lit ballroom, the names of two newlyweds glow in big, cursive letters on the dance floor. The venue, an expansive space with arched ceilings and ornate chandeliers, is no doubt a popular spot for wedding ceremonies, but Majestic Events' team has gone above and beyond to make the space unique to the bride and groom.
This quest to personalize each event is what fuels the decisions of Majestic Events' photographers, videographers, DJs, emcees, and lighting technicians. Their services include live music, photography, and lighting design and were awarded WeddingWire?s Bride?s Choice award in 2011, 2012, and 2013.
Uptown Playaround is a comprehensive play, party, and enrichment center designed for kids ages 0 to 10, offering mirthful minors all the play amenities a candy-cane dreamer could conjure, from life-sized playhouses to multi-level jungle gyms and cushioned toddler crawling zones. The $45 gift card is equivalent to Uptown's five-entry pass, but it can be used toward drinks and snacks, or the delivery of pizza to your child's recreational runaround. The gift card is also valid for a jam-packed smorgasbord of active and educational classes throughout the day and week, including gymnastics, story time, yoga classes, and portfolio diversification. On-the-move moms can take a respite with the free WiFi and cable TV in the parent's lounge, and Groupon purchasers can also apply their gift card toward a private party for their tike and his entourage of cheerful cherubs.

In addition to live entertainment and a dedicated staff, Dr. Lou’s also features an ice-cream window and an open stage policy that lets local guitar handlers try their hand at axe shredding with a chicken wing instead of a guitar pick.
