CWU Theatre Offering Lights up the Holidays

Central Washington University offers a wealth of wonderful performances that will delight you and your family this holiday season.

It wouldn’t be the holidays without Central Theatre Ensemble’s A Christmas Carol, adapted from Dickens’ classic novel by Brenda Hubbard, theatre arts professor. A holiday family favorite, this adaptation features Michael Smith as the crotchety Scrooge, along with members of the Ellensburg community. It is a timeless classic that reveals the true meaning of Christmas. A Christmas Carol will be performed December 5, 6, and 7 at 7:30 p.m. and December 8 at 2 p.m. in McConnell Auditorium. Tickets are $12 general admission, $10 for seniors/students, and $7 for CWU students w/ID.

Tickets for all these events 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.
