  • Like Crazy at Ragtag: Oscar season means some pretty depressing movies during the holidays. But don’t resort to Jack and Jill for some laughs.

Saturday the 10th:

  • A Maplewood Christmas at the Historic Maplewood House from 12:00PM to 4:00PM:  Join the actors from the Maplewood Barn Theatre as they portray Dr. Frank Nifong and his family and friends celebrating the holidays at the Maplewood House in historic Nifong Park.
