'Tis the season to send Scrooge packing!
The Valley Performing Arts Center is currently holding performances of the Charles Dickens classic story A Christmas Carol. The theater opens each Friday, Saturday and Sunday until the final show on December 18th at 2PM.
Larry and I had a chance to go with some friends this past weekend. The cozy theater was full and it looked to be a good time with other locals. In the audience we saw a retired Alaska State Trooper, a former clerk at the Palmer court house, a local lender, a school teacher and our favorite local hospital admissions guru.
The mix of people in the theater was just as we expected-everyone is welcome. You also do not have to dress in your finest attire, there were jeans, slacks, dresses and furs.
A few of the actors really stood out and were extremely well studied. One was a little bitty guy that had no lines but at the end of the show, he without a doubt STOLE the show. We cant give it away, you will have to see it yourself!
