Cheer Up

For many, the holidays are a complicated time filled with packed schedules and interactions, some welcome, some not so, with family members. Learn from the father-son piano duo of Donald and Barron Ryan as they perform selections from their latest album in Bartlesville’s Ambler Hall during Ryan & Ryan presents Merry & Bright: Songs of Christmas Cheer. Come for the pre-show party featuring champagne, cocoa, and hors d’oeuvres or bundle up at home and stream the concert live. November 30. Tickets, $25-$100. okmmusic.org

Welcome to Miami

The best laid plans of mice and men and pageant organizers will inevitably go awry and you can enjoy the chaos from the seats of The Coleman Theatre in Miami when you see The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Adapted from a beloved children’s book, this play follows the harried directors putting on a church Christmas pageant starring the hard-to-handle Herdman kids. Laughter really is the best gift of all. December 2-5. Tickets, $15-$20. thecolemantheatre.org

Jingle All the Way

Strap on your striped stockings. Affix your white beards tightly. Stretch. Stretching is very important. Especially for those about to take off like Rudolph at the Saints Santa Run in Oklahoma City’s Midtown District. Join costumed congregations of contestants careening through the December chill in a 5K, one-mile fun run, and the Santa Claus Kids’ Dash. Those dressed to show off their holiday cheer can take part in a costume contest when the race is through. December 4. Registration, $20-$40. downtownindecember.com
