'The performances feature unforgettable music and drama complemented by a pre-show outdoor live nativity.' Come one hour before the presentation to see the live nativity. The tree itself is a 30-foot-tall steel structure that holds an 80-person choir who stand on wooden platforms bolted to the framework. It weighs over 2 tons, is held together by more than 800 steel bolts, and is all decked out for Christmas with greenery and thousands of lights programmed to complement the music.'
The theatrical presentation 'is a story adaptation of the beloved classic Christmas tale, “The Christmas Carol,” written by Charles Dickens titled, The Gospel According to Scrooge.'
Tickets are only $10.00 for adults and children and $9.00 for seniors ages 65 and over.
A great deal for an inspirational and fun evening which includes parking, hot chocolate and cookies, a live nativity (one hour before the show), music and drama.
