Join the Bethel University Renaissance Theatre Program as they bring to the stage Charles Dickens' classic story “A Christmas Carol.” A tale we all know and love, this new version is now set to music overflowing with Christmas spirit to carry in our hearts all year long.
     Charles Dickens believed that the ills of a greedy world could be healed by brotherhood and unselfishness, subjects that he addresses with the famous character Ebenezer Scrooge. This fully staged musical version of Dickens’ classic tale has become a holiday tradition complete with energetic choreography, beautiful and haunting music by Alan Menken, and over 150 costumes that will carry viewers away to London at the heart of the Christmas season. From the ghost of Jacob Marley, to grand old Mr. Fezziwig, to the humble Bob Cratchit, and to the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, viewers will love the wonderful and creative characters and storytelling in this classic story.
     Join Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the rest of the cast Friday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 5 at 2 p.m., or Saturday, Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. at the Dixie Carter Performing Arts Center in Huntingdon, Tenn. Tickets to the event are $15 and can be purchased online at www.dixiepac.net or at the Dixie Box Office. For more information, individuals may contact 731-986-2100.
