"Come All Ye Faithful" opens this something-for-everyone Yuletide Celebration - and based on the intergenerational full house on opening night, Nov. 29, the faithful keep coming year after year, rewarded with return favorites as well as new segments that are classy, touching and laughter-inducing. At the center of it all are the ISO musicians under Jack Everly's baton, but be aware they might be upstaged by the endearing diva Angela Brown and her co-host Ben Crawford, of Broadway fame.

In addition to the spirited singing and dancing by the supporting cast you'll meet the Grinch in a new light, catch up with the whiz-bang acts of an old-time radio show featuring harmonica virtuoso Mike Runyon and be enchanted by The Toy Shoppe stocked Cirque de la Symphonie and the ISO Company of Living Toys.

The costumes are dazzling; the scenic design for the closing number is spectacular. Come early for events in the lobby, including holiday favorites played on the organ, the art exhibit around the Oval Promenade and to see live reindeer at the entrance. The show is a celebration of the spirit of the holidays on a variety of levels. Through Dec. 23 at Hilbert Circle Theatre
