If you haven't had a chance yet to partake in a seasonal concert, play or ballet, a free production of "A Christmas Carol" is offered Friday at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in Arlington.
Calvary Arlington church has paid to have the well-respected Taproot Theatre Company travel up from Seattle to perform a four-actor, abbreviated version of Charles Dickens' beloved Christmas tale.
The evening's entertainment is a Christmas present to the public from Calvary Arlington, said Jim Jacobson, pastor of the church. It begins at 7 tonight and includes Christmas music performed by church members.
The play adaptation was developed by Taproot's Nathan Jeffrey, who also serves as its director. All the most important characters of the story are included in the show. You'll see Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
"And along with them come some often-missing parts in the tale of Scrooge's redemption. It's the story of a mysterious night and the transforming power of hope," according to Taproot's publicity spokesman.
Since 1976, Taproot has provided traveling entertainment for many communities and churches at Christmas.
The theater group's professional actors come prepared to offer a fine theatrical experience, Jacobson said. And the 670-seat Byrnes center is a great place for any stage production, he said.
"We like to do these sorts of events several times each year," Jacobson said.
The Byrnes center is at Arlington High School, 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd.
