Adelphi University's Annual Free Staged Reading of the Timeless Classic, a Christmas Carol, Returns

—Theatre Professor Brian Rose plays Ebenezer Scrooge; student actors bring to life Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the other characters in a free performance—

In what has become a holiday tradition, Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) is pleased to present a live radio-style reading of Charles Dickens’ timeless classic, A Christmas Carol, by student actors on Sunday, December 20, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. at the AUPAC’s Olmsted Theatre, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY. This popular adaptation is dramatized by Barbara Field and directed by Brian Rose, Adelphi Department of professor, who also plays the role of Ebenezer Scrooge. Professor Rose will be joined by more than a dozen Department of Theatre students who will bring to life Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the other characters we all know and love.

While this treasured holiday event is free, audience members are encouraged to bring a can or box of non-perishable food as a donation to the Mary Brennan Interfaith Nutrition Network of Hempstead. With the addition of a food drive, the students, faculty and staff of Adelphi University’s Department of Theatre hope to share the spirit of the holidays with families throughout Long Island. 

AUPAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds.
