PAGEANT TIME: Tonight's seasonal bon-bon at the Steve Allen Theater is called "The Second Annual Best Doorknockers Christmas Pageant Ever!" Which brings so many questions to mind about the first. We think we'll let the mystery stand, and just enjoy the sweet, smart-minded revelry which is sure to take place on that famously smart-minded stage. Plus: special guests! 8 p.m., $10
MORE PAGEANTRY: It isn't every day that a "traditional London panto" sweeps into town, or is headlined by a certain lass named Cinderella. This production is at the El Portal through Sunday, so get on the gotta-catch-this wagon if you're going to. Oh, and did you hear there's a "Harry Potter" thesp in it as well? Indeed.
MORE PRINCESSES: They're skating at Staples Center in "Disney on Ice." Again, we're most impressed with the twirling-in-ball-gown abilities. We vow to practice this over the holidays. Through Sunday, Dec. 19.
