As if in a football pre-game show, actor Rutherford “Ruddy” Cravens comes out on stage as Handel and details his team (the orchestra and choir), as well as providing a play-by-play analysis of the music. With lots of audience participation and musical demonstrations, Handel’s masterpiece becomes something even very young children can understand and appreciate. 11 a.m. The Church of St. John the Divine, 2450 River Oaks Boulevard.
