This year's holiday show is a twist on Charles Dickens' classic tale, A Christmas Carol. This is not your grandfather’s Christmas Carol. In our version, Charles Dickens' beloved ghost story comes to life in a whole new way, as seen through the eyes of Dickens himself. The author gathers his family and friends for a Christmas Eve celebration and draws them into the process of creating the classic tale. As the people in Dickens' life are transformed into the familiar characters of A Christmas Carol, we are reminded of the real meaning of the holiday season, which is not only a joyous time spent with family and friends, but also a time of providing for those in need. As the First Portly Gentleman says: "it is a time when want is keenly felt, and abundance rejoices."
To encourage this spirit of giving, The Farmington Players is giving away one pair of free tickets to A Christmas Carol for opening night, Friday, December 2nd at 8:00PM. To win the tickets, send an email to AChristmasCarol@farmingtonplayers.org and tell us in 100 words or less why your friend or family member deserves a free pair of tickets. Reasons can include hardship, that they love the tale, or could use a good laugh. The best (most thoughtful, humorous or poignant) entries might even be posted here, in future blog entries of Playing The Barn, so be creative.
