The producers of Dickens by Candlelight (that would be the Olson family, Terry and Robin) are offering a sweet deal for Christmas plays.
Just bring your ticket from one of the other Christmas shows around town to a performance of Dickens by Candlelight, and you’ll get $5 off.

Ebenezer Scrooge’s housekeeper, the forbidding Mrs. Dilber, doesn’t often show up in the opening scene of Charles Dickens’ famous Christmas tale.
But in A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas, Michael Wilson’s adaptation of the Dickens classic, Mrs. Dilber not only makes an appearance at the start of Christmas Eve, but she utters a pointed warning.
Here’s a repeat of an audition notice I’ve already run, with the addition that Beth Marshall Presents is especially looking for African-American actors — especially young men — for its production of A Christmas Carol.
Dennis Neal will play Scrooge in the production, but all other roles are open.
