The sights and sounds. The decorations and the baking. Wrapping of presents and everyone filling the malls to the point that it is hard to find a parking spot. Yes the holiday season is upon us. But take some time to enjoy a lot about the season. There are a lot of things to do besides fighting the malls. One of the best ideas is to watch the change of the mindset of Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.
The play that has been around for many years now, one hundred and seventy-one years to be exact, is being performed at the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts. This is a great story as it shows one man who is against any holiday, people being paid for time off, people who take vacations, and this year it is performed by a great cast. Richard White plays the part of Scrooge and he is one of the best there is. He has performed with the New York City Opera for many Broadway shows and is also a television actor who has many awards to his name. Richard White is also known for his singing abilities and has a number of Grammy Awards.
Combine the talents of Richard White with the rest of the cast and the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts has brought a wonderful holiday favorite to a local theater. There are a number of new actors who have never been in front of an audience but you could not tell that by keying in on any of them.
Take time for the holiday and enjoy a night to yourself. After all the holidays are about many reasons to celebrate and this is a great way to celebrate. A Christmas Carol is running through December 22 at the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts. Take time for yourself and see a holiday tradition.
