Central Theatre Ensemble’s take on the Charles Dickens’ classic is a holiday tradition at Central Washington University.
Adapted for the stage by director and Central Theatre Arts professor Brenda Hubbard, “A Christmas Carol” takes both the audience and the leading character, Ebeneezer Scrooge, on a journey of discovery and redemption as the true meaning of Christmas is revealed. With the Cratchits, Tiny Tim, the Ghosts of Past, Present, and Future, and many more vivid Dickensian characters, this heart-warming story is a family favorite.
The cast features members of the community and Theatre Arts professor Michael Smith will portray Scrooge.
“A Christmas Carol” will be performed in McConnell Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on November 18, 19, and December 1, 2, 3 and at 2 p.m. on November 20 and December 4. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and students, and $7 for CWU students with ID. Click here to purchase tickets online. The performance is appropriate for children age 10 and older.
Parking is free in all university lots after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends.
CWU is the only state institution that offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with highly competitive programs in musical theatre, performance, and design and production.
