Adelphi University’s Annual Free Staged Reading of the Timeless Classic, A Christmas Carol, Returns on December 17


In what has become a holiday tradition, Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) is pleased to present a live radio-style reading of Charles Dickens’ timeless classic, A Christmas Carol, by student actors on Saturday, December 17, at 2:00 p.m. at the AUPAC’s Olmsted Theatre, 1 South Avenue, Garden City. Dramatized by Barbara Field and under the direction of Brian Rose, Adelphi Department of Theatre Professor, this popular adaptation is brought to life by more than a dozen Department of Theatre students who embody Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the other characters we all know and love.While this beloved holiday event is free, audience members are encouraged to bring a can or box of non-perishable food as a donation to the Mary Brennan Interfaith Nutrition Network of Hempstead. With the addition of a food drive, the students, faculty and staff of Adelphi University’s Department of Theatre hope to share the spirit of the holidays with families throughout Long Island.

AUPAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds. For more information about all events at AUPAC and to purchase tickets, visit pac.adelphi.edu.
