Santa On The Fire Truck
Santa Claus and his helpers will be riding on a fire truck through the streets of Coral Gables on December 22 and December 23 on three separate routes (North and South poles) around the city where he will pass by as many homes as possible, giving out candy canes to all the boys and girls along the route who have been extra good this year. Listen carefully for the holiday sound of the fire truck.

Renovated Biltmore Golf Course Open
The Biltmore’s famed 18-hole, 71-par golf course has completed its restoration to its original grandeur of the 1925 Donald Ross-designed layout, extending the overall course length to more than 7,100 yards, making it worthy of PGA championship level play.

Mary Queen Of Scots at Gables Cinema
The Scottish Queen is a woman ahead of her time in the celebrated new film featuring Oscar nominees Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie as the dueling monarchs. Based on Dr. John Guy’s interpretation of the life of the Scottish Queen, Mary Queen of Scots breaks Mary (Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan) free from misconceptions of her as a weak or sexually promiscuous monarch and depicts the betrayal and rebellion within Mary’s turbulent court. http://www.gablescinema.com/events/mary-queen-of-scots/

Last Weekend for Havana Music Hall
Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle TheatreDon’t miss the final curtain for Actors’ Playhouse production of Havana Music Hall at the Miracle Theater this weekend. An exciting world premiere, Havana Music Hall reflects the pulse of our community with its irresistible musical beat and heartwarming story centering on Cuban musicians Rolando and Ramona Calderon, and their lives in Cuba from 1958 to the present. Just as their local Havana band is about to get its big break, the Revolution tears apart the only world the duo have ever known. This moving and relevant new musical explores the challenges and joys of one family’s 50-year odyssey for survival, presenting a journey which immigrants of all cultures from around the world have traveled for generations. https://www.actorsplayhouse.org/

Plan Ahead – Nov 24 – Actually at GableStage
GableStage TheatreTwo freshmen at Princeton spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy– and if unspoken, can it be called consent? A funny, witty and lyrical investigation into gender and race politics, our desire to fit in and the three sides to every story. GableStage is located at the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave. Call 305-445-1119. http://www.gablestage.org
