With the Christmas season in full swing, a couple of community theaters are donning costumes to entertain audiences with traditional plays, childhood favorites and modern musicals.

The Habersham Community Theatre is doing a mix of a children’s classic and musical mashup with “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “The Elves’ Impersonator.”

Young and old thespians will sing songs of the Christmas seasons at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 15-17 and 2 p.m. Dec. 18 at 1370 Washington St. in Clarkesville.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 children. They can purchased online at www.habershamtheater.org or by calling 706-839-1315.

Based in Buford, Fifth Row Center is mashing the talents of British author Charles Dickens and American writer, cartoonist and animator Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss. The theater troupe is transforming Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” into wacky rhymed couplets.

With zoot fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo Hoo, the tale of holiday cheer is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with if he ever had his way with the story.

 “A Seussified Christmas Carol” will be at 8 p.m. Dec. 16 and 3 p.m. Dec. 17 and 18. Dinner theater will begin at 6 p.m. Dec. 17. Performances will be at St. Mary & St. Martha of Bethany Episcopal Church, 4346 Ridge Road, Buford.

Tickets are $10 ($11.34 with service fee) for students and seniors and $15 ($16.52 with service fee) for adults. Dinner theater costs $25. To purchase tickets, email info@fifthrowcenter.com or call 770-965-0534.
