A Christmas Carol – The Chuck Mathena Center Holiday Tradition


Princeton, WV – Glad tidings from The Chuck Mathena Center In Princeton! The holiday show which has become a family tradition, A Christmas Carol, returns to the CMC stage Tuesday, December 15 at 7pm. When Charles Dickens wrote his “ghostly little tale” in 1843, he couldn’t know that A Christmas Carol was destined to become one of the most beloved holiday traditions of all time. By telling this fable illustrating the unfairness of the Industrial Revolution and the necessity for brotherhood and unselfishness, Dickens gave the world one of its most enduring Christmas stories.

The Nebraska Theatre Caravan, the professional touring wing of the Omaha Community Playhouse, has been performing Charles Jones’ delightful adaptation of A Christmas Carol since 1979. The Caravan’s Carol, which weaves traditional Christmas carols throughout the narrative, is probably the most widely produced production of Dickens’ in the nation, annually performing for more than 100,000 people in more than 60 cities across the country. This captivating performance of the familiar classic will be presented at the Chuck Mathena Center on December 15. Tickets are on sale now  - $27 for adults and $22 for students.
