Today’s entertainment picks:

v “Miracle on Easy Street,” 2:30 p.m.: A song-and-dance spectacle with a holiday theme, presented by Easy Street Productions at Powers Auditorium, 260 W. Federal St., Youngstown; 330-743-8555.

v “Ugly Christmas Sweater Revue,” 8 p.m.: Silly sweaters are the common denominator in this family show at Rust Belt Theater’s venue in Calvin Center, 755 Mahoning Ave., Youngstown; 330-507-2358.

v Winter Nights at the Gardens, 5-7 p.m.: Stroll through Fellows Riverside Gardens, twinkling with lights on a brisk winter night, then warm up with carols and refreshments. The Gardens are at 123 McKinley Ave., West Side;

v Artists of the Rustbelt Last Minute Market, noon to 5 p.m.: Last chance to get a unique gift handmade by local artists and crafters. It’s at B&O Station, 530 Mahoning Ave., Youngstown;

“The Sound of Music” (7 p.m., ABC): You’re invited to sing along with the Von Trapp clan during the annual holiday airing of “The Sound of Music.” Don’t worry: This is the “real” one with Julie Andrews, not the live one with Carrie Underwood.

“Homeland” (9 p.m., Showtime): We were so ready to give up on this spy thriller after a clunky Season 3 in which Brody met his maker. But Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin and company have revived our interest with a turbocharged fourth season that, sadly, comes to an end this week. We can only hope our heroes make it out of strife-torn Islamabad alive.

“The Affair” (10 p.m., Showtime): We have no idea what will happen to star-crossed lovers Noah and Alison (Dominic West and Ruth Wilson) when “The Affair” wraps up its scintillating first season tonight. But as usual, we’ll be riveted to our sofas and loudly scolding them both.

‘Carole King’ auditions in Pgh.

If you think you can sing “It’s Too Late” and “So Far Away” like Carole King, some Broadway producers would like to hear from you.

Auditions will be Feb. 21 in Pittsburgh for the role of King and other cast members for “Beautiful — The Carole King Musical.” There will also be auditions in New York on Jan. 16; Seattle on Jan. 24; Orlando, Fla., on Feb. 7; and Chicago on Feb. 28. The current King, Tony Award-winner Jessie Mueller, is leaving the show in March. In addition to the Broadway show, a U.S. tour kicks off in September.
