Best to avoid the mall this weekend, as the holidays draw nigh. These events (though they may be few) will help keep you away.
Catch the beloved all-lady improv group Mary Kay Has a Posse. They're performing for one night only. There's plenty more comedy this weekend too, with The Christmas Will Be Televised and the Have Nots! Holiday Show.
Introduce the kids to opera the fun way with the CSO's production of Hansel and Gretel. Come early for the Instrument Petting Zoo. Young'uns will also have fun at the Night Before Christmas Classical Kids' Concert. For more music, see the Holy City Messiah, the Sound of Charleston: Holiday Edition, the Christmas Cantata, A Child's Christmas in Wales, or A Spiritual Christmas.

The Village Rep's much-anticipated opener in their new home on Woolfe Street, The Man Who Came to Dinner, opens Friday.
And if you're an educator or work at a school, avail yourself of some free yoga at the Yoga House of Charleston.
