Rosebud Theatre enters winter months presenting an adaption of Christmas classic

- CONTRIBUTE­D

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and adapted by Ron Reed is starting this weekend.

This Christmas Rosebud Theatre is bringing back our gorgeous production of Ron Reed’s adaptation of A Christmas Carol, starring Nathan Schmidt in all the roles you know and love! It also happens to be a story about a new beginning, fitting as we welcome audiences back to the theatre.

You might recall that we opened the show last Christmas for 2 short and lively weeks before having to close it due to COVID. Here’s a chance for everyone who hasn’t to see it, and those that want to see it again, to do so

“Come to Rosebud and be transporte­d to a Christmas Eve in Victorian England. Let a street-wise Storytelle­r, with a lighted candle and a twinkle in his eye, share the story of a miser who was meant to be a benefactor. His name is Ebenezer Scrooge and on this very night he will be visited by three spirits ....

Using Dickens’ richly descriptiv­e language, Nathan Schmidt imagines this well known tale of redemption in a way that reawakens the time honoured Christmas spirit it embodies. Join us for this Christmas classic.

It will be playing Wednesdays – Sundays from November 12th - December 23rd. Call 1-800-267-7553 to book your ticket.
