Dickens' A Christmas Carol

 Dickens' classic tale will be brought to life again on our stage this Christmas season by veteran director Dr Stan Coe. With a cast of both veteran and new actors this show is sure to get you in the Christmas Spirit!

 Love is a powerful thing. It comes and refuses to leave. Even if one tries to disregard its presence, its embers wait to be set aflame again. So it was with Ebenezer Scrooge. A rollicking boy at first – whose heart was chilled by his relationship with his father – his inner compass was set off course. He wandered far from the love that sought him... from Fan, Belle, and the Fezziwigs. He could not see it in his nephew's kindly invitation to family belonging or in the nobility of Bob Cratchit, who was everything his own father probably was not.
 But seek him love did – through the intercession of long dead business partner Jacob Marley and three Spirits representing past, present, and future. For Scrooge, time as we understand it was upended one Christmas Eve night as love sought to redeem a lost sheep. Despite his trepidation, Scrooge willingly followed the Spirits on a journey that would change his life. Ultimately, called out of his hermitage of self, all his pride and righteous indignation melted away. On Christmas morning, all he was left with was a humble awareness of his life. The Spirits had shown him the eternal present, and he was redeemed through grace. From then on, Scrooge walked a new path.
 It has been said that justice is when we get what we deserve and mercy is when we get what we likely do not deserve, but it is given to us anyway. For Scrooge, it was all a gift. He was given a second chance, and in the deepest meaning of the incarnation that is Christmas, so was the rest of the world.

A HISTORIC THEATER IN A HISTORIC SETTING 

Vistors often refer to our small historic Southern town as something out of an old movie or a retro television show. References to the rural town of Andy Griffith's Mayberry, the dramatic landscapes of Gone With the Wind or the idyllic charm of Bedford Falls in It's a Wonderful Life, the City of Washington is a charming postcard town full of gorgeous old houses, tree lined streets and a quaint downtown square. 

Likewise, the Bolton Lunceford Playhouse sits proudly among the historic North Alexander School complex, which dates back to the 1890's. Originally, the Playhouse was the school gymnasium.  While public and private efforts are currently underway to rennovate the school buildings, the Bolton Lunceford Playhouse and the members of the Washington Little Theater Company continue to act as beacons for this educational complex.  

The Playhouse is located within a five block walk from Washington's downtown square. Unique shopping and dining experiences on the square, combined with a live theater production, make for a fun evening out! Occasionally the theater will team up with area businesses to offer special promotions and discounts. Be sure to check out the season calendar for a complete list of theater events.
