Carrboro’s ArtsCenter offers a rather different look at the holiday season with “A Civil War Christmas.” Set on Christmas Eve in 1864, this play with music weaves together stories of war-weary Union and Confederate soldiers, runaway slaves and historical figures from President Lincoln to Walt Whitman. A particularly moving scene is the soldiers’ vain search for a Christmas tree on the scarred, barren battlefields. 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday; 3 p.m. Sunday (through Dec. 22). $10-$16. artscenterlive.org.
