The Man Who Saved Christmas 

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Dec. 16 2007
Price: $17-$20

Altarena Playhouse revives The Man Who Saved Christmas, the new musical it debuted last year written and directed by Ron Lytle, whoseOh My Godmother has also been a repeat crowd-pleaser for the venerable Alameda community theater. What a difference a year makes: The story about one toymaker's attempt to stop a ban on metal toys during World War I becomes quainter still when children's playthings are now being recalled for lead poisoning and date-rape drugs. Nov. 30-Dec. 16 at Altarena Playhouse, Alameda.Altarena.org or 510-523-1553.
