Radio host turns playwright in Boca

For those of us who enjoy public radio, tune in for a special treat this week. Fans of the NPR news quiz show “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” and its host, Peter Sagal, can turn off the radio and see a production written by the master of playful puns this weekend at FAU Theatre Lab in Boca Raton. “Most Wanted by Peter Sagal,” tells the tale of a retired couple who steal their granddaughter and take her down to Florida … to comedic effect, of course! This world premiere marks the opening of FAU Theatre Lab’s season, so this is one you won’t want to miss.

“Most Wanted by Peter Sagal”: 7 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays through Dec. 17, starting tonight. Tickets are $35. FAU Theatre Lab, Parliament Hall, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton. Info: 561-297-6124 or www.fauevents.com

Classic chorale at Society of the Four Arts

There are an infinite number of traditions taking place during the holidays, whether it’s watching TV specials from the 1960s or suffering through the annual office party.

Florida’s premier vocal ensemble, Seraphic Fire travels to the Society of the Four Arts for a candlelight performance of classic English carols and Gregorian chants. Even Scrooge himself couldn’t resist.

A Seraphic Fire Christmas: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Tickets start at $40. The Society of the Four Arts, 2 Four Arts Plaza, Palm Beach. Info: 561-655-7226 or www.fourarts.org
