Staged Reading – A Christmas Carol

Be part of our staged reading of A Christmas Carol – adapted and directed by Matthew Garlin, based on the book by Charles Dickens.

This perennial favorite will be presented as a staged reading due to the current restrictions in place regarding gatherings. Our preference is of course to be able to come together as a cast with a live audience – but our goal now is to keep our members, patrons, and performers safe.

If you are interested in being part of this performance – please visit the Auditions page for details.

Performances are slated to take place the weekend December 18-20 pending cast availability.
