White Christmas Album III: Music Box Theatre has created its own formula - for the third holiday season, mixing Beatles songs, Christmas songs and original comedy sketches. The talented singers in this revue company (most of them formerly with Masquerade Theatre) just wanted to do a Christmas show with Beatles music - and since the Beatles never recorded any Christmas songs, the troupe mixes-and-matches to get the right Liverpool/North Pole vibe. With so many good Christmas songs, not to mention Beatles songs, this could go on for years. 7:30 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, Dec. 5-27; also 7:30 p.m. Dec. 18, 22-23; Music Box Theater, 2623 Colquitt; $35-$45; 713-522-7722, musicboxtheater.com.
