Frostburg State University will start the holiday season with a spectacle-driven production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” on Dec. 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m., with matinee performances on Dec. 5 and 11 at 2 p.m. The performances will be held in the Drama Theatre of the Performing Arts Center.

Adapted for the stage by Gerald Freedman, this seasonal favorite follows the ever-powerful Scrooge, a lonely and greedy miser, who, through the intervention of spirits from his past, present and future, finds a second chance to become a caring human being. In this imaginative production brought back from FSU’s 2009 season, Dickens’ London unfolds like a pop-up storybook, with singing voices and special effects. A holiday gift to experience again and again, “A Christmas Carol” will have your whole family caroling all the way home.
