Rozsa to present "A Christmas Carol" Dec. 16-17

HOUGHTON -- Bring the entire family to the holiday classic, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, in a spectacular, heart-warming Christmas production performed by the Nebraska Theatre Caravan, at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts on the Michigan Tech campus.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 16-17. Tickets for adults are $28, seniors $24, and students $20.

This lavish, full-scale Broadway-style production, boasting a cast of 27 people and live musicians, has now been touring for over 30 years! This time-tested tale artfully blends the classic story with rousing arrangements of traditional carols like "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Wassail, Wassail," "Good King Wenceslas," "Greensleeves" and many more. Combining supernatural with the sentimental, both children and grown-ups alike will be delighted with this treasured theatrical event. Sponsored by the James and Margaret Black Endowment.

And in the spirit of Christmas giving, please join the staff of the Rozsa Center along with the cast of A Christmas Carol in a Class Acts Children’s Outreach Series fundraiser, "A Toast to the Holidays!" at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 17. Fundraiser tickets are $20 for adults, and kids under twelve are $10. 100% of the profits from the afternoon’s event will benefit the Class Acts Children’s Outreach Series.

Eat, drink and be merry with the cast of A Christmas Carol! Fun for the entire family: Includes food, cider, cocoa, cookie decorating, and all for a good cause! Why? The mission of the Class Acts program at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts is to present a diverse program of performing arts events for young audiences in the Copper Country Intermediate School District.

The program is designed to entertain and educate students and to enrich the school curriculum with performances by professionals from a broad range of disciplines. Sing carols, raise a glass, or dance with Ole Fezziwig; a rousing good time will be had by all -- and all in the name of charity and good will! Happy Holidays from all of us at the Rozsa Center!
