A holiday haunting at Valley Center Stage

Experience holiday entertainment for the whole family with Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas ghost story, “A Christmas Carol” at Valley Center Stage, 119 North Bend Way.

This inspiring holiday classic runs three weekends; Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3, 5, 10, 11 and 17, 18 in Valley Center Stage’s charming 100 seat theater above the SingleTrack bike shop in downtown North Bend, Washington.

This is Center Stage’s sixth year of presenting this holiday classic. It has become a tradition in the Snoqualmie Valley, with sold-out performances throughout the show’s run each holiday season. The cast includes new additions and seasoned actors who return each year to celebrate the season. This year, 20 local actors will guide the journey with Ebenezer Scrooge as he evolves from a holiday-hating “humbug” of a fellow to an inspired man capable of love and redemption.

In the cast this year are Ed Benson, Craig Ewing, Bill Stone, Sean Stone, Forrest Heintz, Alex Killian, Anna Killian, Denise Paulette, Sydney Prins, Becky Rappin, Leslayann Schecterson, Julia Buck, Rene Schucter, Robin Walbeck-Forrest, Brydian Forrest, Rebekah McFarland, Avery Dahline, Tony Dambrava, James Kolke and Gary Schwartz as Scrooge.

The show runs on Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 3, 4, 10. 11 and 17 and 18. There are also two Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. on December 11 and 18.
