Sunday, December 13th, 3pm
Perhaps the best loved holiday story of all time, Theatre IV’s adaptation of Dickens’ classic is particularly suited to children, and features a magnificent score by Julie Styne, the composer of Broadway’s immortal Peter Pan, Gypsy and Funny Girl. All the joy, sentiment and meaning are here, without being too scary for young audiences.
Sponsors: Moore & Giles, Jamerson Lewis Construction, and the Ruth S. and Louis B. Basten, II Fund.
