Price: $15-25

Back for its second season, this Raleigh holiday tradition-in-the-making is touting a major upgrade in production values with the addition of African American Dance Ensemble choreographer and founder Baba Chuck Davis to its creative team. In 1961, Langston Hughes adapted the story from the Book of Luke for stage, fusing scripture, poetry and liturgical dance with classic African-American gospel songs and original tunes. In its regional debut last winter, music director Carolyn Colquitt led a righteous band and a strong and soulful gospel choir, while director Deb Royals' spoken-word sequences unfolded the tale of a world brought new hope through a child. Since the music already made us feel like dancing, expect Baba Chuck to capitalize on the impulse. The show runs Thursday–Saturday at 8 p.m., with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. —Byron Woods
