Hosanna Dance Studio, Eugene’s only faith-oriented dance studio, and its Creative Director Tiese Morgan built a full-length ballet from C.S. Lewis’ novel, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but don’t expect a faithful adaptation. For those who cherished the subtle parallels Lewis made between Aslan, the resurrected talking lion, and Jesus of Nazareth, you will be delighted that Adventures in Narnia pushes the Biblical themes to the forefront. But really this production is all about community building during the holiday season. “Narnia allows us to share the talents and gifts of children from our local community who may never have the opportunity otherwise,” says Morgan. That’s something to cheer, regardless of your beliefs. 1 and 7 pm Saturday, Dec. 13, and 4 pm Sunday, Dec. 14, at LCC’s Performance Hall. $10-$15.



What did New Wave’s protopunk scene sound like before the Talking Heads sang their songs about psycho killers and arson? It sounded a whole lot like The Modern Lovers, a group fronted by Jonathan Richman, who plays Sam Bond’s this week with his longtime drummer Tommy Larkins. The Modern Lovers’ classic “Roadrunner” was so influential it was scalped by international pop star M.I.A. on her recent hit “Bamboo Banga.” Like his era’s cohorts David Byrne and Lou Reed, Richman has been consistently churning out new work since his heyday in the ’70s. Vapor Records (who released this year’s Because Her Beauty Is Raw and Wild) claims Richman “does not participate in the Internet on any level” but instead maintains his fanbase through exhaustive touring. So if you want to check up on this art rock star’s life on the road, you can’t read his blog, but you can go to his show. 9:30 pm Saturday, Dec. 13, Sam Bond’s. 21+. $12.


Yeah, we know: How many productions of A Christmas Carol can we possibly endure in one month? But wait, something’s missing this year! Oh yeah, that’d be the now-defunct Willamette Rep’s annual production. So it is delightful that the Pleasant Hill Community Theatre company will step up and fill Will Rep’s Carol vacuum and balance out Actors Cabaret’s raucous musical production (opening Dec. 19) of the Charles Dickens classic. PHCT’s production, presented as dessert theater on Friday and Sunday in Pleasant Hill, will get its big-stage billing at The Shedd’s Jaqua Concert Hall on Saturday. “For us,” PHCT Board President Michael Stearns says, “Eugene is the big-time and we aim to put on a crowd-pleasing show.” Local playwright Fred Crafts has been bringing Dickens’ characters to life in a 1940s-style radio theater program for years now. Last year’s PHCT production took extensive liberties with the original story in order to bring out the humor. This year Crafts will stick to a traditional interpretation that will surely “appeal to the purists out there,” says Stearns. Look for Frank Muhr as Scrooge (pictured), Claude Offenbacher as Bob Crachit and former Oregon Bach Festival Executive Director Royce Saltzman as Marley. 7:30 pm Friday, Dec. 12, and 2 pm Sunday, Dec. 14, at Pleasant Hill Community Theater; 7:30 pm Saturday, Dec. 13, at The Shedd. $15-$18.
