‘Incident at Our Lady of Perpetual Help’
7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 3 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. Public Theatre, 31 Maple St., Lewiston, $30, $20 students 19 and over, $15 for 18 and under.
Head to Lewiston for a time machine trip back to 1973, where a Catholic church is the setting for the comedy “Incident at Our Lady of Perpetual Help.” The O’Shea family is thrust into the crosshairs of a hilarious crisis when a priest overhears the 19-year-old O’Shea teen tell her younger sister all about the birds and the bees. The jokes will be as prevalent as the polyester, as family unity saves the day.

Hopefully, there will be snow on the ground, but regardless, Sleigh Day at Skyline will be worth your while. There will be sleigh rides ($10 for adults, $5 for kids under 12), and the carriage museum will be open, with two sleighs for kids to climb onto and period costumes to dress up in for family photo ops. You can also peruse the impressive carriage collection dating from the late 1800s to the early 1920s. Partake in sledding in the fields or, at 1:45 p.m., a guided snowshoe trek through the trails. Lunch and hot drinks will be available all day.
