This holiday season, for one weekend only, Dec 13, 14, and 15th, The Public Theatre, will present their acclaimed adaptation of A Christmas Carol. “There’s a great reason why this story is told during the holidays”, says Artistic Director Christopher Schario. “Sometimes it’s easy to forget the true meaning of the season in all the holiday shopping. Watching Scrooge’s journey awakens my own holiday spirit and always gets me ready to truly celebrate Christmas.”
Another thing worth celebrating is The Public Theatre’s top ticket price of only $20 for adults and $5 for everyone eighteen or under. It’s professional theatre at a price even Scrooge would love!

The Public Theatre’s adaptation remains many peoples favorite. Much of Dickens’ original text is used, with six actors sharing narration, and portraying various characters. A live fiddler underscores the story with traditional Christmas music, and a hand-cranked wind machine and a thunder sheet create a delightfully theatrical atmosphere. Uncluttered by spectacle, the audience’s imagination is free to soar, and this classic story comes to life in a way you’ve never imagined.

A Christmas Carol, Friday, Dec 13th at 7 pm, Saturday, Dec 14th at 2 pm and 7pm, and Sunday Dec 15th at 2 pm. For tickets call 782-3200.
