Dickens’ classic to spread the message

November 24, 2012 by  

A Christmas Carol, a traditional slice of holiday life that goes along with mistletoe, family dinners, carolers, and Christmas cheer is watched by many families each year. This year, the Hale Center Theatre is presenting the live version of Charles Dickens’ classic on stage.

This wonderful seasonal play teaches the value of treating people with respect and dignity through the use of three ghosts that visit Mr. Scrooge, after the old miser had mistreated most people in his life, especially his assistant, Bob Cratchit. The ghosts show Mr. Scrooge the error of his ways by having him revisit his life in the past, present, and then predict the future. Mr. Scrooge then has a fantastic turnaround for the better and begins his new ways by visiting the Cratchit family with Christmas cheer and treats. There he meets and learns about Tiny Tim.

To entice families in this community and other communities to become part of the audience, it would be no surprise if the organizers have been consulting poster printing services. Tickets range in price from $16 to $20, with children receiving a $4 discount.

A Christmas Carol will be performed from Friday, November 30, until Saturday, December 22nd starting at 7:30pm at the Hale Center Theatre Orem located at 225 West 400 North in Orem, Utah. There should be plenty of opportunities for even the busiest of families to catch a showing so, for tickets, please visit the Hale Center Theater website or call the box office at 801-226-8600.
