A Christmas Carol
Tuesday, December 03, 2013 at 7:30 pm
We all know the story of Ebenezer Scrooge. But did you know that Dickens’ story is credited with helping to popularize all the Christmas traditions we take for granted? Christmas trees, cards, carol singing — even giving employees off for Christmas were not common practices at the time the story was written.
Woven with beautiful renditions of holiday songs such as “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Greensleeves,” this sumptuous production will remind us why we never get tired of watching the Dickens’ story about the importance of charity and love.

“I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book , to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.”
Their faithful Friend and Servant, C.D., December, 1843
