The Nevada Conservatory Theatre presents the Charles Dickens' holiday classic A Christmas Carol Dec. 1 - 17 in the Judy Bayley Theatre. Christopher Edwards directs.
London, Christmas Eve, 1843. Confirmed miser Ebenezer Scrooge is surprised in his humble dwelling by the appearance of the ghost of his long-dead partner, Jacob Marley, who prophesies that three more ghosts will appear during the night. Each arriving at their appointed hour, the spirits take Scrooge on a whirlwind adventure through his past, present, and future. Barbara Field’s fast-paced adaptation of Charles Dickens’ beloved novel is simultaneously one of the greatest ghost stories of all time and a timeless holiday classic.
