Every aspect of Christmas, from the Christmas lights to the horrendous task of buying gifts for less-than-deserving people, is enough to turn the holidays into the least wonderful time of the year. The Sixth Street Playhouse reintroduces the original roots of the holiday season through their performance of ‘A Christmas Story,’ with proceeds benefiting the Living Room, the only day shelter for women and children in Sonoma County. The Christmas Miracle comes to the stage on Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Sixth Street Playhouse. 8pm. $30–$35. 800.838.3006.
