The Friendly Ghosts

The Christmas holiday is typically a bi-polar event. On one side we experience the joy of sharing and giving gifts. On the other we combat the stress of making it happen -- and the post-consumer remorse that accompanies the mounting stack of credit card receipts. But even the pain of those bills can be eased into remission with the viewing of A Christmas Carol. The Dickens classic comes alive with Southwest Shakespeare Company’s second annual performance run. Laugh, cry, cheer, and get goose-bumps as the ghosts of Jacob Marley and Christmas past, present, and future visit stingy Ebenezer Scrooge. Just as he changes his perceptions of what the holidays really stand for, so might you.
