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.

Acoustic Music Playlist – A Free Collection of Music for your listening pleasure!

*Is it open mike or open mic? I’ve seen it spelled both ways. So I checked my dictionary, which lists mike as the preferred spelling, and mic as a variant. Other dictionaries I consulted didn’t include mic at all. Still unsatisfied, I checked Bryan A. Garner’s Dictionary of Modern American Usage (1998 edition). Garner argues, “Whereas mike more immediately suggests the pronunciation, mic more immediately suggests the longer form. All in all, mic might be considered preferable.”
