Sound Across the Waters. Certainly any time of year is a good time to hear the bold bellowing of three Irishmen, but with Christmas right around the bend, the Irish Tenors bring Old World charm to this ancient holiday. Whether belting out ballads of Christmas cheer, or serenading sweetly as only those from the Land of Erin can do, a trip to see these brazen boys will transport you to another time. The trio performs 8pm at The Joint, located in the Hard Rock Casino, 777 W. Cherokee St., Catoosa. For more info visit hardrockcasinotulsa.com.

Feeling a little bogged down with the season already? Take a break and remind yourself of how fortunate you really are. If a story about an orphan around the holidays doesn't put things in perspective, it is uncertain what will.

Main St., Broken Arrow. For more info visit bacptheatre.com.
