What the Dickens? The Lantern Theatre Reads “A Christmas Carol” in a Valley View Barn

Sat 12/16 @ 6PM

It was standard in bygone days for acting troupes to present their mainstays in community barns. The Lantern Theatre in Cuyahoga Valley National Park presents A Christmas Carol in a manner suited to those pre-Tony Awards, pre-Actors Studio days, inside an authentic 1905 red barn next to a working farm.

Troupers of the Lantern will read/dramatically recite the original 1843 text of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. There will be live piano accompaniment, warm cider, biscuits and a baked goods sale — and very likely, genuine snow and ice around, and even potentially within the venue (attendees are advised to dress warmly). Carol sing-alongs will follow the performance.

Admission is $12 at the door — cash or checks only, no credit cards, no online sales; they like to keep things old-fashioned and simple at the Lantern, bless ’em.
