See ‘A Christmas Carol’ on Tilson stage at ISU

TERRE HAUTE — A Christmas classic is coming to Indiana State University’s Tilson Auditorium. “A Christmas Carol” will be performed for one night only on Tuesday by nationally known production company NTC Productions.

Charles Dickens’ beloved fable depicts the transformation of cold-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge, whose only cares revolve around money, into a loving individual with an open heart. Dickens’ Victorian era comparison between rich-but-unhappy Scrooge and the poor-but-content Cratchit family still rings true with today’s audience members.

During the performance, spectators will fall into the holiday spirit with the beautiful Victorian set and elaborate costumes. Magical special effects, such as a spinning bed, make the performance come alive for the whole family.

NTC Production’s incorporation of traditional caroling into the script makes this version of A Christmas Carol a must-see for the holidays. Audiences will be singing songs such as “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Away in a Manger” for days after the show!

The performance of A Christmas Carol at Tilson Auditorium will begin at 7:30 p.m. with a special pre-show performance by the Northview High School Choir beginning at 6:45 p.m. Attendees may also enjoy having their family photos taken with Santa, and Toys for Tots will be collecting at the event.

“A Christmas Carol” is showing as part of the Indiana State University Performing Arts Series, sponsored by First Financial Bank. Tickets are $16 for adults, $10 for youth, $14 for Indiana State faculty and staff, and free for all Indiana State students presenting a valid student ID.

Tickets are available through the Hulman Center Ticket Office, online through TicketMaster.com, or over the phone by calling 1-800-745-3000.
