"A Christmas Carol" returns to UWL

The holiday classic returns to Toland Theatre

The UWL Department of Theatre and Dance will present the holiday family classic, “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens and adapted for stage by Barbara Field. It’s a beloved and timeless Christmas story that teaches the importance of giving, family and the true spirit of Christmas.  

“A Christmas Carol” runs at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 2-3 and 8-10 and 2 p.m. Sundays, Dec. 4 and 11, in Toland Theatre, Lowe Center for the Arts, 333 N. 16th St. 

“A Christmas Carol” tells the story of a disgruntled, old, cranky money lender, Ebenezer Scrooge. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge learns his stinginess and uncaring attitude toward others could doom him to walk the earth after death wearing a heavy chain of his own creation. A restless night of visits from Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future show Scrooge the forgotten memories of his past and his likely future should he continue in the error of his ways.
