Unless it's a Dickens tale or a church Christmas pageant, it's often a struggle to find good theater this time of year. Lucky for the good Lord, who's probably tired of all that glorified self-reference, the drama and dance department of Colorado College is presenting Moon of the Scarlet Plums in the Japanese Noh theater style. The masked and stylized actors will perform Erik Ehn's modern-day story of a Native American shaman who comes across the ghosts of Crazy Horse and a 12th century Japanese warrior named Astumori, who spur him to embark on a spiritual quest. The performance, directed by visiting professor Yuriko Doi, begins at 8 p.m. in Armstrong Theatre, on the northwest corner of Cascade Avenue and Cache La Poudre Street. The show runs through Dec. 19, and tickets are $2-$5. Call 389-6607.
