All Things Brooklyn – Brooklyn Sting: Christmas Events This Week

Posted Monday, December 8th, 2008 at 10:54 am by Julie in Cultural Bees. More in 11215

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and it’s not just from Saturday night’s scenic snowfall.   Holiday decorations are popping up all over the city’s most populous borough.  If you’re feeling like you need a little Christmas, here’s where to go.

A Tuna Christmas: Comedic high jinks abound in A Tuna Christmas, produced by The Gallery Players in Park Slope.   It’s the night before Christmas in tiny Tuna, Texas.   The town’s kooky residents are up in arms about the annual yard decorating contest and a mysteriously cursed production of A Christmas Carol.  Two actors play all twenty roles.  Tickets are $18 for adults and $14 for kids and seniors.  Performances run through December 21.

Secret Project Robot Holiday Sale:  Shop for handmade gifts from local, independent designers at this sale in Williamsburg.

Christmas Lights Bus Tour: Hop on a cozy warm bus for a 3 1/2 hour tour of the tackiest holiday lights in Dyker Heights, BK.  A Slice of Brooklyn promises mechanical reindeer, glowing nativity scenes, and 30-foot toy soldiders.  At $55 per person, tickets are a little steep, but it’s a good diversion for out of town relatives and closeted tourists with NYC addresses.

If you’d prefer your Christmas lights to be free, Gowanus Lounge has a handy DIY guide to Brooklyn’s tackiest holiday lights.

A Brooklyn Nutcracker: Catch Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet at Brooklyn Music School Playhouse for a fraction of the price that you would pay to see NYC Ballet.   Tickets are $20 for adults, and $15 for kids and seniors.  The curtain goes up in Fort Greene on December 12-14.
