“Come laugh until your face hurts!”

Big Bear Lake, CA, November 24, 2013 – Next month, the Big Bear Theatre Project will present its own hilarious version of the classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge. Comic trio Steve Cassling, Ty Warren and Brian Adams will play all the familiar Dickens characters, plus some originals. The show is done in the ‘panto’ style of theater, with its rowdy combination of audience involvement, political humor, songs, and — photo opp! — guys in dresses. “A Christmas Carol… askew” opens December 19 for a four-show run at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center (39707 Big Bear Blvd.). Show times are 7:30 p.m. December 19, 20 and 21 and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 22. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Tickets are available at the door, online and by phone at (909) 866-4970. To find out more about the Big Bear Theatre Project, visit their website....

And the last thing you need is a sick puppy during the holidays. Why not wait until right after the holidays before you get the puppy. You can take more time to think about what type of pup will fit best in your household. Do you want a large dog or a small dog, an energetic dog or one that can be more of a lap dog? Think about rescuing a young dog or puppy from a local shelter or humane society. Use your time now to gather the supplies you’ll need to set up your home, explore training options and get ready! Remember, a puppy is a wonderful addition to the household, but holiday time may not be the ideal time to bring home your new addition. Wait until after the holiday and you will have more time and energy to care for your wonderful new member of the...
