‘Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story’ comes to Princess Street

By Staff | Nov 25, 2016

The Black Box Arts Center is excited to present a new adaptation of a Shepherdstown favorite: Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story. This inspired version of the holiday classic is re-imagined through highly theatrical storytelling.

“The first community theater in this space opened with a very popular Christmas Carol in 2008. Since then, if we ever produce something different for the holidays, many of our patrons express some measure of disappointment,” said Laura Richards Bakin, artistic and managing director.

This year’s admission to Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story includes light refreshments which can be enjoyed before, during and after the performance.

“We’d like to celebrate the holidays not only with a performance, but with a party. It’s our way of thanking everyone for their support over the past year. We hope the community will join us for the festivities,” saod Bakin.

The show will feature Roger Hulme as Scrooge and Riley Welch as Tiny Tim. Other local actors include Ty Unglebower, Danielle Guy, Jacob Reese and Adam Welch. Performances will run Fridays, Dec. 2 and 9 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Dec. 3 and 10 at 8 p.m. and Sundays, Dec. 4 and 11 at 2:30 p.m. at the Black Box Arts Center, 113 S. Princess Street. Friday/Saturday admission $15; Sunday admission $12; student admission $8. Discounted rates are available for groups of 10 or more. Tickets can be purchased online at blackboxartscenter.org, or at the door. Advance reservations can be made by emailing theblackboxartscenter@gmail.com or by calling 304-870-4685.
