The Department of Theatre and Dance welcomes the holiday season with its production of “A Christmas Carol,” a heartwarming, toe-tapping musical extravaganza.

Performances of the classic tale by Charles Dickens are set for 8 p.m. Dec. 8-10 in Steele Hall Mainstage Theatre, with matinees at 2 p.m. Dec. 10 and 11.

All performances are open to the public.

With music by Alan Mencken and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, the musical tells the story of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who changes his ways after visits by the ghosts of Christmases past, present and future.

Michael Slavin directs the show, with musical direction by Ted Kovall and choreography by Diane Eperthener.

Cost is $12 for adults, seniors and children. Cal U students with valid CalCards are admitted free.

For ticket information, or to order tickets (with a credit card) by phone, call the Steele Box Office at 724-938-5943.
