Earlier this week we told you about three holiday shows poised to open. These three other regional stages are poised to entertain you starting Friday, Nov. 12:

“Irving Berlin’s White Christmas,” directed by Christi Axelson. This presentation “tells the story of two showbiz buddies putting on a show in a picturesque Vermont inn, and finding their perfect mates in the bargain. Full of dancing, romance, laughter and some of the greatest songs ever written, including ‘Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,’ ‘Happy Holiday,’ ‘Sisters,’ ‘Blue Skies,’ and the unforgettable title song.” Nov. 12–14 and Nov. 19–21, River City Theatre Co., Tower Theater in Roseville, 417 Vernon St. $12–17 (Note: tickets must be purchased in advance.)

“Legally Blonde: The Musical,” directed by Alison Gilbreath. “Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law School. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.” Nov. 12–14, Nov. 19–21 and Nov. 26–28, Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter St., Folsom. $16–$24 (some shows are sold out)

“Titanic, the Musical,” directed by Steve Isaacson. “Titanic was the biggest ship ever built; it was declared to be unsinkable. But on 15 April 1912, not long after hitting an iceberg, the Titanic sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic. That trip . . . and that ship . . . is so steeped in history, that more than 100 years after that fateful event, the world’s fascination with it has not ebbed. Note: This is not a musical of the 1997 movie by James Cameron.” Nov. 12–14, Nov. 19–21 and Nov. 26–28, Davis Musical Theatre Company, Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Pena Drive, Davis. $16–$18
