Port Arthur Little Theatre


A Christmas Carol

Due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, we have had to cancel this weekend’s performance of A Christmas Carol.  It was a difficult decision to make, but one that had to be made.  Please bear with us and spend Thanksgiving weekend with us and the next weekend while we bring Charles Dickens classic story to life.  If you had purchased tickets for this weekend, they will be honored on either of the other two weekends.  Thank you for your continued patronage and understanding.

New Dates are: Nov. 27-29 and Dec. 4-6, 2015

Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean, old businessman who thinks that Christmas is a frivolous holiday, just an excuse for people not to work. Despite his vast fortune, Scrooge hoards money, refusing to give to charity because he believes that the poor are just lazy and deserve no such help. He doesn’t even pay his hardworking and loyal clerk, Bob Cratchit, a fair wage that would allow him to get his sick son, Tiny Tim, proper medical attention! Despite Scrooge’s heartlessness, his nephew and only living relative, Fred, still wants to spend Christmas with his uncle, but the miser rejects him. On Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who is now paying dearly for how he lived his life—the same way Scrooge is living his life now! Marley tells him that three spirits—the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come—will visit him that night. These phantoms will show old Scrooge how he became so hard-hearted, what he’s lost out on because of it, and what will happen if he keeps going down this path.
