CTE's Christmas Carol Ushers in the Holidays

Central Theatre Ensemble's take on the Charles Dickens classic is a holiday tradition at Central Washington University.

Adapted for the stage by director and Central Theatre Arts professor Brenda Hubbard, A Christmas Carol takes both the audience and the leading character, Ebeneezer Scrooge, on a journey of discovery and redemption as the true meaning of Christmas is revealed. With the Cratchits, Tiny Tim, the Ghosts of Past, Present, and Future, and many more vivid Dickensian characters, this heart-warming story is a family favorite.

The cast features members of the community and Theatre Arts professor Michael Smith will portray Scrooge.

A Christmas Carol will be performed in McConnell Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on December 6 and 7, and at 2 p.m. on December 8.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and students, and $7 for CWU students with ID. Tickets are available online at, by phone at 509-963-1429, or at the Wildcat Shop. Parking is free after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends, excepted in specially designated spaces (handicapped, loading) or lots assigned to residence halls.

CWU is the only state institution that offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with highly competitive programs in musical theatre, performance, and design and production.
