If you’re weary of the avalanche of “beloved holiday classics” this time of year, here’s your show. A couple of actors revolt and refuse to perform another retelling of A Christmas Carol. Instead, they trot out every “BHC” — aka “Beloved Holiday Classic” — they can think of and (for 90 minutes) poke fun at the holidays. This is Cincy Shakes’ 10th time staging the show; it’s enlivened with references to the past year’s news and events. Shows often sell out, so call soon to see Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Brown, Mr. Grinch, George Bailey and — of course — Ebenezer Scrooge get their chestnuts roasted.
Through Dec. 27. $30. Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, 719 Race St., Downtown, 513-381-2273, cincyshakes.com.
