Let's face it: With all manner of toy commercials relentlessly aimed at the kiddos this month and constant talk of list making and Santa's workshop, it might be difficult for the smallest among us to understand that it's better to give than to receive. So guide them to this way of thinking with an update on Scrooge's old tale. Bah! Humbug! — a musical comedy — speaks to today's children (much as Scrooge McDuck spoke to you), showing them that kindness, not presents, rules, and that giving really is the way to go. The Imaginary Theatre Company presents Bah! Humbug! at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday and Tuesday, and at 10 a.m. Wednesday (December 19, 22 and 23) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road, Webster Groves). Tickets are $6; make a purchase by calling 314-968-4925 or by visiting www.repstl.org.
