NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - The Westminster College Celebrity Series will present A Christmas Carol Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Orr Auditorium.
The Nebraska Theatre Caravan returns to Westminster College for this stage production of Charles Dickens' holiday classic. It features a spirited ensemble of 28 performers who bring the tale of redemption to life on a magical set created by noted designer James Othuse.
A full array of timeless carols such as "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Away In a Manger" and "Here We Come A-Wassailing" are interwoven within the classic story of a tight-fisted, middle-class merchant Ebenezer Scrooge and all the beloved characters from Dickens' 1843 novel.
The show is sponsored by Giant Eagle.
