The Children’s Performing Arts Series at Stephen F. Austin State University will usher in the holiday season with two performances of “A Christmas Carol,” presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre, on Friday, Dec. 1.
Perhaps the best loved holiday story of all time, this adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic is particularly suited to children. Watch Mr. Scrooge have a change of heart from stone to gold as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas. All the joy, sentiment and meaning are here, without being too scary for young audiences. The play targets children in kindergarten through fifth grade.
Performances are at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus. Tickets are $7.50 for individuals and $6 per person for groups of 20 or more. Tickets go on sale Aug. 14. To order tickets, call (936) 468-6407 or (888) 240-ARTS. Visit the CPAS website at www.cpas.sfasu.edu for additional information.
