Tickets on Sale for ‘A Christmas Carol’

December 21, 2020

MOSCOW, Idaho — Dec. 21, 2020 — The University of Idaho Department of Theatre Arts is bringing back its popular holiday classic “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens for one night only at 6 p.m. PST, Wednesday, Dec. 23.

“For those of you who were ‘naughty’ and missed the show the first time around, in the spirit of Dickens’ tale of redemption, we wanted to give you a chance to be ‘nice’ and catch the show this time,” said Robert Caisley, chair of Theatre Arts.

“It’s been a year of strife and stress and sadness for people around the country and the world, and it’s our profound wish this production, offered to our community with warmth and hope, will bring some small measure of comfort and relief this holiday season.”

The prerecorded livestream performance will feature Professor David Lee-Painter as the infamous Scrooge and students from the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences.

Adapted for the stage by Kendra Phillips, a Master of Fine Arts candidate in theatre and directed by Craig A. Miller, the play is a fresh retelling of Ebenezer Scrooge’s self-reflective journey from miserly wretchedness to merry redemption. With fully realized costumes, lighting and sound, the family-friendly theatrical Zoom event will fill your home with holiday cheer.

Tickets are free for U of I students, $10 for individuals, $20 for families.
