A Christmas CarolThe Musical is under the direction of Mary Knox-Johnson with music directed by Karen Bradley and accompanied by Wayne Hoff. This joyous new show from England with music by Piers Chater Robinson and brilliantly adapted by Chris Blackwood is a traditional, vibrant, two-act musical based on the classic novel by Charles Dickens.  The play, written and produced in England just last year, has only been performed in the U.S. on three previous occasions.

Tickets are modestly priced at $12 for adults and $6 for children under 18 and may be purchased at Iverson’s Corner Drug and Ken K. Thompson at the Mall. Tickets may also be purchased at the box office one hour before the performance.

Bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Shelf to the theater, and receive a $1 refund on the price of a ticket.

This production is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council through funding from the Minnesota State Legislature.
