Normally, we’d save this for one of our “Fab Five for the Weekend” lists but these tickets are going to sell out much too quickly. So here’s an early “Fab One for Thanksgiving Weekend” item for you. Dan Zanes, the insanely popular kids’ entertainer, is bringing his brand new holiday-themed show to San Francisco at noon and 5 p.m. Nov. 29 and 30. And then the show is heading to Broadway.
San Francisco Performances is billing “Holiday House Party with Dan Zanes and Friends” as a 21st-century alternative to “Nutcracker.” There’s tap dancing, Arabic beats, disco Hannukah tunes, a sing-along, and even a little posada-style fiddling. And did we mention the puppets? Big, big fun. Tickets are $25-$35. Get ’em while they’re hot.
