Santa with her Foster's lager

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s annual send-up of Christmas classics is onstage, transforming a production of A Christmas Carol into an irreverent and fast-paced skewering of other holiday favorites ranging from It’s a Wonderful Life to the Grinch and Charlie Brown.

Three actors (and a slightly tipsy Santa) spend 90-plus minutes of “high octane jollity and frivolity” making merry this season in an adult-friendly romp through both kitschy and nostalgic Christmas favorites.

It’s fun and funny and a favorite local tradition.

Through Dec. 30. $43-$53. Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, 1195 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, cincyshakes.com.
