Dan Bielinski, theater director at University of Mary, is bringing Charles Dickens' 19th century masterpiece, "A Christmas Carol," to the stage. The piece of fiction is still popular today because of its powerful message of transformation, redemption and the spirit of the Christmas season.
“This is my first production of ‘A Christmas Carol,’ and I’m excited to bring the humor, joy and terror of Charles Dickens’ class to the stage at the University of Mary,” Bielinksi said. “I’m hoping the production will just be a big Christmas party. Dominick Goettle, a recent alumnus of the University of Mary, is music director for the show. He’s worked closely with the singers in the show to seamlessly weave musical accompaniment in to the performance.”
Performances are at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with an additional 2 p.m. performance on Saturday in Arno Gustin Hall on campus.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Arno Gustin box office before the performances. University of Mary student, faculty and staff will receive one complimentary ticket.
