This upcoming holiday season, Judson College’s Theatre Program will perform “A Christmas Carol” on Nov. 13, 14 and 15.

All three performances will be held on campus in Alumnae Auditorium at 7 p.m.

This production of “A Christmas Carol” is a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s timeless classic about finding compassion and forgiveness and preparing to meet one’s maker.

The director of the play is Dr. Billie Jean Young; musical director is Dr. Betty Campbell; and stage designer is Jamie Adams. Admission to the play is free.

In addition to the play, Judson’s English Club will be hosting a traditional Dickensian Christmas Dinner at 8:30 p.m. in Archibald Hall after the Saturday, Nov. 15 performance.

The dinner menu will include roast goose, turkey and other specialties from the Victorian Christmas table.

Begin your holiday festivities with a big helping of Christmas fun and food.

If you are interested in the Victorian Christmas dinner, an advance ticket purchase is required by Nov. 10 — $8 for the general public; $5 for Judson College students and children 12 and under.
