The cast of “Enchanted Bookshop Christmas “ gathers after a successful performance by Encore Stage & Studio Nov. 19. It is four days before Christmas and Miss Margie, the scatterbrained owner of the shop, gets a visit from her sister and niece. Her sister, who was laid off as an astronomy professor, accidentally encounters a high tech space billionaire who stops in the shop and wants to hire her. But the plot thickens when the bookmark with his phone number disappears, and it takes some magic and some luck to turn up a happy ending. Performances continue at Gunston Arts Center Theater 2700 S. Lang Street in Arlington, Dec. 3-5.
