Puppetry Theatre Presents ‘Christmas Carol’

The Carrollton Puppetry Theatre invites audiences to experience Charles Dickens’ timeless classic, A Christmas Carol, in a whole new way at the Carrollton Center for the Arts, December 7 – 9.   

“This year we developed a series that showcases our puppet program and some of the premiere puppet programs on the east coast,” said Arts Center Manager Tim Chapman. “We wanted to create an original holiday show and A Christmas Carol was the perfect project. This show features puppets, staging and a script created here in Carrollton. Come see how the puppet theatre brings this holiday classic to life.”

The Center for the Arts received a grant from the Georgia Council for the Arts to develop this show. The classic story of three spirits who arrive on a single haunted night to teach miserly Ebenezer Scrooge the meaning of Christmas has delighted audiences since it was published in 1843.

“I have always enjoyed A Christmas Carol, imagining that it would be a great vehicle for puppetry,” said the show’s director, Scott Foxx. “Puppets, like spirits, are magical and can embody all sorts of characters in infinite styles of design, so I was excited about the chance to make my own vision of the Dickens classic a reality. I hope that it gives the audience the right blend of chills and Christmas spirit.”

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for youth (12 and under) and can be purchased online at carrolltonarts.com, by phone at 770-838-1083 or at the center’s box office at 251 Alabama Street.

The performance is sponsored by United Community Bank.
