A Gentler Time

If the recent Truman Capote biopics on the big screen are a bit too grim and ghastly for your tastes, then try a couple of his more family-friendly works on the small stage as Duncanville Community Theatre presents "The Thanksgiving Visitor" and "A Christmas Memory" (bundled together as Holiday Memories). The holidays are a time of celebration, but that doesn't stop Buddy and Sook from getting into trouble in these heartwarming tales. Holiday Memories runs 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (and November 17 and November 18) with a matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday at Duncanville Community Theatre, 106 S. Main St. Tickets are $8 to $10. Call 972-780-5705 or visit dctheatre.org.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 p.m. Starts: Nov. 9. Continues through Nov. 18
