LBCC’s Performing Arts Department will present “A Christmas Carol” starting Thursday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the Russell Tripp Performance Center, Takena Hall, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.
A contemporary take on the classic Charles Dickens tale, the play is set in America where Ebenezer Scrooge, a successful businesswoman, has built her money-making empire.
Adapted by John Mortimer and directed by LBCC theater director Dan Stone, the play features puppetry, mask performance, original music and dance. For a behind-the-scenes peak of the puppetry work, check out the link on the college home page at www.linnbenton.edu.
