A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol, Hale Theatre, Orem, Utah

Often lauded as the “second greatest Christmas story ever told,” Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol will usher you into the season of giving. This traditional story of Scrooge and his ghostly visitors is filled with old-world charm, beautiful costumes, breathtaking music, and, of course, a full helping of Hale’s heart and comedy.

No Christmas Season is complete without the din of family dinners, glorious games, magical mistletoe, caroling carolers, firkins of wassail, and Dickens’ timeless characters that embody Christmas cheer: Bob Cratchit, Mr. Scrooge, three Christmas ghosts, and of course, Tiny Tim. Whether you have seen it once, fifty times, or more, Hale Center Theater Orem invites you to be their guest for an evening as you escape all the noise, commercialism, and greed that have invaded this time of year so you can remember what the season is all about.

Christmas Cruise

Riverboat Christmas Light Tour, Provo, Utah, Provo River

Riverboat Christmas Light Ride

Enjoy a lighted riverboat ride on the lower Provo River. There are thousands of lights reflecting off the water, holiday scenes along the shore, and Christmas music on the boat. Santa even comes to visit on his canoe. Last year close to 2,000 people enjoyed CLAS Christmas Cruise during the month of December.

Two professional excursion boats accommodate 40 people per ride. Since the boats are uncovered, blankets and warm clothes are strongly encouraged. The ride is a round-trip experience that takes 25 minutes, with departures every 30 minutes, on the hour and half-hour.
