‘A Christmas Carol’ to be presented at Pitt-Bradford Dec. 2


“The Cratchit family” in “A Christmas Carol” from The Nebraska Theatre Caravan

BRADFORD, Pa. – A Broadway-style musical adaption of Charles Dickens’ popular “A Christmas Carol” comes to the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Bromeley Family Theater Dec. 2.

The Nebraska Theatre Caravan will present the musical production at 7:30 p.m. in Blaisdell Hall. A part of the Prism series, admission is $18-$22 for the public and $10 for all students.

Twenty-eight performers bring Dickens’ fable of redemption to life on a magical set created by noted designer James Othuse. A full array of traditional Christmas carols is woven into the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge. Each carol was chosen for the dramatic atmosphere it contributes to the total evening. The songs themselves are traditional, but musical arrangements courtesy of John Bennett are contemporary.

“This holiday classic is a favorite of young and old, and the performance by the Nebraska Theatre Caravan that will not disappoint,” said Patricia Colosimo, coordinator of arts programming. “The full-size professional production, with its spectacular costumes, sets and music is an exciting way to celebrate this holiday season.”

Tickets are available by calling the Bromeley Family Theater Box Office at (814)362-5113. For more information on the show, visit www.nebraskatheatrecaravan.com .
