TheatreworksUSA presents "A Christmas Carol" at Wisconsin Lutheran College

November 27, 2006

MILWAUKEE - TheatreworksUSA, America's largest not-for-profit theatre for young  audiences, will present a musical interpretation of Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol" in the Schwan Concert Hall at Wisconsin Lutheran College Sunday, December 10 at 3:00 p.m.

In the TheatreworksUSA production, we meet the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve as he complains about giving his clerk, Bob Cratchit, the next day  off. Maintaining that Christmas is merely "humbug," he even refuses the invitation of his nephew, Fred, to join his family for a holiday celebration. Later that night when he is visited by a succession of spirits - the ghost of his deceases partner, Jacob Marley, and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet-to-come - Ebenezer considers the consequences of his past and present actions and reconsiders his outlook on life.

"A Christmas Carol" is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Arts Board. The Schwan Concert Hall is located in the college's Center for Arts and Performance at 8815 West  Wisconsin Avenue. Tickets are $10, $8 seniors and $6 students/children. For further information, please call the box office at (414) 443-8802. Tickets may be purchased online at wlc.edu/arts.

Since 1996, the Wisconsin Lutheran College Center for Arts and Performance has been providing a comprehensive program of performing and visual arts and educational and community events for students and the people of southeastern Wisconsin.
