“A Christmas Carol” Coming to the Glema Mahr Center for the Arts

OPening scene from A Christmas CarolThe Nebraska Theatre Caravan will present Charles Dickens’ holiday classic A Christmas Carol at the Glema Mahr Center for the Arts on Tuesday, December 1 at 7 pm.

When Charles Dickens wrote his “ghostly little tale” in 1843, he couldn’t know that A Christmas Carol was destined to become one of the most beloved holiday traditions of all time. By telling this fable illustrating the unfairness of the Industrial Revolution and the necessity for brotherhood and unselfishness, Dickens gave the world one of its most enduring Christmas stories.

The Nebraska Theatre Caravan, the professional touring wing of the Omaha Community Playhouse, has been touring this delightful adaptation of A Christmas Carol since 1979. The Caravan’s Carol, which weaves traditional Christmas carols throughout the narrative, is probably the most widely produced production of Dickens’ in the nation, annually performing for more than 100,000 people in more than 60 cities across the country.

Tickets are $20 and $16. Children 12 and under are half-price. Visit the Glema Center or call (270) 821-2787 for more information.
