Here’s the problem: You want to go shopping to score bargains with society's masses, but the kids don't have any interest in sharing this "fun event" with you. The little urchins need something to do while you help Santa prepare for Christmas.
What if you could drop the kids - aged 5 years to 10 years old - off at a fun, entertaining place like the Young Peoples Community Center for three hours, while you enjoy shopping, whine-free? During The Dickens’s Drop-N-Shop event, kids are invited to participate in activities including Christmas games, arts and crafts, a pizza party, and a movie. Everyone's happy!
The YPCC will be available Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for the Dickens’s Drop-N-Shop event.

The Cumberland Theater Presents
"Every Christmas Story Ever Told"
Sunday, 2:00 p.m.; Saint Francis University JFK Auditorium
Presented by The Cumberland Theater, directed by Don Whisted, starring Daniel Atwood & Rhett Wolford. Three actors set out to perform a beloved holiday classic by Charles Dickens, but instead of performing A Christmas Carol for the umpteenth time, they decide to perform every Christmas story ever told and then some. You will hear slightly twisted tellings of Christmas traditions from around the world and no seasonal icon, local figure, or anyone in topical pop-culture is safe. You will even hear a rendition of every carol ever sung! In this fast-paced madcap romp through the holidays, the actors will transform themselves into over a dozen characters each! You are sure to love this hilarious, irreverent, and sometimes poignant telling of “Every Christmas Story Ever Told.” To reserve your tickets, call 814-471-1182.
Admission: $10 Adults/$5 Students
