December 8, 2015 – A Christmas Carol

Maranatha Christmas CarolCharles Dickens’ well-loved classic tale has returned to the stage in Maranatha Baptist University’s production of A Christmas Carol.

Jeff Miller portrays Ebenezer Scrooge, who is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future and is given a “chance and hope of escaping his fate.” The case of more than 45 includes actors from the Watertown community as well as Maranatha Baptist University students.

Director Christina Miller shares: “We’ve adapted the script, overhauled the costumes, and redesigned the set. We are also using technology to create exciting special effects for the piece. Essentially, this production will be unlike any of the previous productions that we have done her at MBU.”

A Christmas Carol will be showing December 8, 10, 11, and 12 at 7pm, with a matinee showing on December 12 at 2pm.

Tickets are currently open to the public: adults $10, students (college age and below) $8.50, and senior $7.50. Childcare is not provided.

For ticket reservations, call Guest Relations (920-206-2370) from 1-4pm Monday through Friday. Tickets may be reserved with cash, check, VISA or MasterCard.
