Valley Center Stage in North Bend is renewing its holiday show, “A Christmas Carol,” for the holiday season. The shoe opens Friday, Dec. 1, and runs for three weeks.
“A Christmas Carol” is the classic story by Charles Dickens that follows Ebenezer Scrooge, a character we love to hate, but come to understand, as he faces the reality of his evolution in the days leading up to Christmas. The play opens with Scrooge at the height of his wealth and success, but years of miserliness has turned him into a bitter old man. His only companion is his tired meek servant, Bob Cratchit, until the spirit world, led by his former business partner, makes him reconcile with who he is, where he came from, and where he is destined to go.
They play is adapted and directed by Brenden and Wynter Elwood.
Show dates and times are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, Dec. 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16, and 2 p.m. Sundays, Dec. 3, 10 and 17.
Tickets are $17.50 for adults, $14 for students and seniors. Thursdays are pay-what-you-will performances; a $10 minimum donation is suggested.
