>Capital City Christian Church’s popular Christmas in Mayberry will be reprised several times beginning Wednesday, Nov. 28 through Saturday, Dec. 8. Tickets are free but are required and each performance includes dinner. There’s a limit of six tickets per person and they typically go quickly.

Reservations will be taken beginning at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12. For more information, contact the church at 695-1188, fax 695-8747 or visit
