    Fri., Dec. 6, 7 p.m.

    Unexpected guests during the holidays can be unsettling. Now imagine that said guests are three ghosts forcing you to face your past mistakes, present misery and future fate. That’s what Ebenezer Scrooge endured one haunting night in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The Nebraska Theatre Caravan comes to the Flynn MainStage for the 36th year with Dickens’ 1843 tale of miserly Mr. Scrooge and the trio of apparitions that help him find the true meaning of Christmas. Adapted for the stage by Charles Jones, the music-filled production features 23 cast members carrying out the classic yuletide story against Broadway-style scenery. at Flynn MainStage in Burlington (map). $25-62.

    If you’ve seen the 2004 Academy Award-winning Civil War drama Cold Mountain, you’ve heard musician Tim Eriksen. Drawing on his deep knowledge of musical traditions, the singer and multi-instrumentalist lent his chops to the film’s Americana soundtrack. A player of banjo, fiddle, guitar and bajo sexto — a Mexican 12-string acoustic bass — Eriksen has served as front person for groups such as folk-noise band Cordelia’s Dad, shape-note quartet Northampton Harmony, and Bosnian folk and pop band Zabe i Babe. The Americana master brings his powerful interpretations of ballads, shape-note hymns and dance tunes to a Green Mountain State concert. at River Arts in Morrisville. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $15.

The film, officially released next year, focuses on 27-year-old Khongoroo as she reconciles her upbringing as a nomadic reindeer herder in Mongolia’s remote East Taiga with her new life as a physician in the country’s capital, Ulaanbaatar. “I think I gained a lot and lost a lot,” Khongoroo says in the movie’s trailer. A reception with Carey paves the way for this special prerelease screening. at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury. Middlebury Area (map). $22.
