Pasadena Theatre Company is renewing its own holiday tradition of presenting "A Christmas Carol" for a total of six performances at Chesapeake Arts Center.
"Set in Victorian London, "A Christmas Carol" tells the story of stingy merchant Scrooge, who chases carolers away in the plays opening scene and in another Christmas Eve scene counts the number of coals his beleaguered clerk, Bob Cratchit, burns to take the bitter chill from his office.
Dickens depicts the abuses of industrialization, including merchants' greed and inhumane working conditions, with children being forced into harsh labor and deprived of education.
The message of "A Christmas Carol" is that miserly Scrooge is redeemable as he learns the lessons taught by visiting spirits of past, present and future Christmases, undergoing a transformation that enables him to celebrate the holiday. In the process, Scrooge also learns how to live the other 364 days of the year and realizes that his miserliness may have deprived and impoverished him as much as it has others."
PTC will be offering a beautiful Christmas concert prior to the production under the direction of David Merrill. What a fabulous way to jump-start your holiday season with not only a concert but a fabulous production of "A Christmas Carol". We sincerely hope that you will join us in the festivities by attending this year's Holiday Classic!
Tickets: FREE for CAC Members(Please Call the CAC Office at P:410-636-6597) $10.00 Adults; $5.00 Children 12 & Under

Buddy Holly and the Crickets never made a Christmas album. But we started thinking – what would it have been like if Buddy had recorded holiday tunes? Hence, OH BOY! It’s Christmas. The show isn’t ALL yuletide fare, about half is our favorite OH BOY! rockabilly/tex-mex classics with the other half being holiday fare done in a way that’ll make you say OH BOY!
