Catholic Secondary Schools and Catholic Central High School present Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol | Arts & Culture
The Catholic Central Drama Department will be presenting Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol on October 18 and 20 at 7 p.m. and October 20 and 21 at 3 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center located on the campus of Aquinas College. All performances will be staged at the Performing Arts Center at Aquinas College.
The story is a take-off from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and explores Marley’s journey to free himself from his private tormentor. To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge's heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story discovers his own.
Ticket sales will begin today, October 8, at noon at the Aquinas Box Office (616-456-6656). At the door, tickets will be priced at $8 for general admission and $6 for students with ID.
