Stuffed on turkey? Sick of the kids? We have a solution. Here are a few ways to get the Munchkins out of the house during the holiday weekend.
Whether they are your children, nieces, nephews, or the grandkids, everyone could use a little room to breathe, or you could be that saint and just spoil them. We’ve got that covered, too.
1) Colorism Affecting Our Future
About: Student pieces on display reflect what participants in the Studio 345, an Arts & Science Council program, determined through a three-year collaboration with the Levine Museum of the New South.
The exhibit explores student responses from Brown vs. Board to the Ferguson, Missouri uprising through a 2015 program started by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience. It encourages participants to engage in dialogue regarding education equity, race, as well as incarceration relating to civil rights history.

Saturday: 10-4 p.m.
Sunday: 12- 5 p.m.
Kids: $6 (free for children under 5 years old)

2) “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever: The Musical”
About: Who doesn’t love a little trouble at Christmas? Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s holiday favorite takes the stage with the Herdmans once again.
Feel inspired as the Herdmans try to cleverly snatch all of the Sunday school snacks by auditioning for the Christmas pageant, not with their initial devious plot, but with a reminder of what the holidays are all about—hope. Kids can see their peers on stage, as CTC casts the characters in age-appropriate roles.
Nov. 23: 7:30 p.m.
Nov. 24: 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
