Mile Square Theatre presents: 
A Christmas Carol
Charles Dickens’s beloved holiday story is brought to life in a tour de force solo performance by Lenard Petit. In A Christmas Carol Mr. Petit appears as the spirit of Charles Dickens, who in the reading of his classic novella, creates a magical world of characters, from past, present, and future, and brings to life this time-tested story of a cold-hearted miser who finds redemption on Christmas Eve.

Sun. Dec. 5 & 19 at 3pm
Tickets: $20 • Students and Seniors: $12
