Mrs. Cratchit is such a slut. That woman obviously can't keep her legs together, what with the 40,000 kids she's crammed into the tiny Cratchit hovel. Of course, Bob Cratchit is no better. Are there no suitable ladies of the night willing to lie still for a shilling or two? It may seem like a lot of money now, Bob, but it'll save you buying food, clothing and, if your genes are any indication, crutches, down the road. So it's no surprise to us that Mrs. Cratchit is going crazy in the Richardson Theatre Centre's production of Mrs. Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge, a rollicking Christmas comedy that takes Dickens full on. The show runs at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday through December 16 (with a 2 p.m. matinee on December 10). The Richardson Theatre Centre is at 718 Canyon Creek Square in Richardson. Tickets are $12 to $16. Visit richardsontheatrecentre.com.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 10, 2 p.m. Starts: Nov. 23. Continues through Dec. 16
