[friday]: Best Bets


---- — Catch Pioneer’s holiday play this weekend

“Fruitcakes” tells the story of the townspeople of McCord’s Ferry, through the eyes of a runaway boy, Jamie. The story will also focus on two “little old ladies” who cook for everyone in town and several other chuckle-inducing characters.

It’s a comedy and a drama, but most of all, it’s a very warm Christmas play with a powerful message. It’s something the students at Pioneer Jr.-Sr. High School have been working on for a while now and will present to the public this weekend.

Students will perform “Fruitcakes” at 7 p.m. today and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in the Pioneer Jr.-Sr. High School Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students and will be available at the door.

Finish your shopping at craft/gift fair

If you’ve finished your holiday shopping already, you are in a very small minority. But it’s OK because Thompson Elementary has you covered. The school is hosting its 21st craft and gift fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the school on Ind. 218.

If you are done shopping, stop by just to see Santa. He’ll swing by to have cookies with the kids from 10 a.m. to noon.

For more information, call 574-727-5205.

Singing Hoosiers perk up holiday spirits

The Logansport Performing Arts Council will present a Christmas show featuring the Indiana University Singing Hoosiers at 3 p.m. Sunday.

The 90-person choral group from Indiana University will sing everything from modern tunes to classics to Christmas music. The Logansport High School show choir will be performing two numbers with the Singing Hoosiers.

IU performers are promising the show will be a lot of fun, with the first act including songs from the group’s fall preview and show choir, and the second act will include Christmas songs.

Tickets for the event at McHale Auditorium are $20 for adults and $10 for students.
