A Treasured Holiday Event Returns to the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center: A Christmas Carol

Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center (AU PAC) is proud to announce the return of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

Garden City, NY, November 17, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center (AU PAC) is proud to announce the return of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. This staged reading, dramatized by Barbara Feld and directed by Adelphi’s Brian Rose, will be held on Sunday, December 18, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. in the Olmsted Theatre, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY. Although the performance is free, in the spirit of A Christmas Carol, audience members are encouraged to bring non-perishable food products. Alpha Psi Omega, the Theatre Honor Society, will collect the donations and deliver them to the Mary Brennan Inn in Hempstead.

A Christmas Carol was originally written by Charles Dickens, but it is Barbara Feld’s famous adaptation of the story that will be read again this year. Adelphi University faculty member Dr. Brian Rose, along with 15 student actors, will bring to life Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, and all the other characters we know and love from this classic tale.

With the addition of a food drive to this annual tradition, the students, faculty, and staff of Adelphi University hope to share the spirit of the holidays with families throughout Long Island. This added dimension breathes new life into a production that has brought joy to so many for nearly two hundred years.
