Charles Dickens is one of my favorite authors, so I love “A Christmas Carol,” in all its forms. I mean, the book has been adapted multiple times in the movies, even as a Western and with Vanessa Williams in the lead Scrooge role.

So I am looking forward to seeing how this new arrangement presents all the classic characters we love: Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, the ghosts and, of course, Ebenezer Scrooge!

Performances are Dec. 4-5 and Dec. 11-12 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees set at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 6 and Dec. 13. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for students, which I think is a great deal for quality family entertainment!

Get in the holiday spirit (so to speak) while supporting community theater! What a wonderful way to kick off the season!
