Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun-filled weekend in St. Louis. If you are still pulling your plans together for the weekend, here are a few suggestions to help.
Finding Neverland at The Fox | December 6–18
Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is “far and away the best musical of the year!”
Christmas at the Cathedral | December 10
It’s easy to forget that Christmas music is actually a pretty ancient genre that predates Bing Crosby by centuries. For the 12th year running, the Cathedral Basilica hosts a concert of this traditional and liturgical music for the holiday season, performed by the Archdiocesan Adult Choirs, Orchestra, Children’s Choir, and Handbell Choir. They’ll perform a two-part concert that includes John Rutter’s Gloria; Hodie Christus natus est, Ave Maria; and the 18th-century German carol, “O come little children.”

This exhibit will explore the history of the Blues’ franchise featuring an ice rink floor, original dasher boards from the Arena, a Glenn Hall statue replica, goalie net, season ticket holder holiday cards from the Salomons and wall murals of past and present players. In addition, hockey fans will marvel at the collection of 30 player jerseys, including the original prototype St. Louis Blues jersey, 60 game-used hockey sticks and eight display cases filled with memorabilia on loan from St. Louis Blues fans.
