You might want to include "The Polar Express" this weekend at Jeslyn Performing Arts Center. I know there are performances on Friday and Saturday, I'm not certain about Sunday.

It's very easy to miss one -- even working in theater, it's sometimes astonishing how many shows are actually playing in our area.
