The Fine Arts department of Ozarks Technical Community College will present Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at the Gillioz Theater Nov. 21-22 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, Nov. 23 at 2:30 p.m.
Admission is free for OTC students, faculty and staff who pick up tickets in advance from the Help Desk located in the Information Commons building of the OTC Springfield Campus. General admission tickets cost $8 and can be purchased by calling 417-863-9491 or visiting www.gillioz.org.
“This classic story reminds us that even the hardest of hearts can be softened – that it’s never too late for redemption,” said Jon Herbert, director and OTC theater instructor. “Our performance is fun – and often funny – and also a bit heart wrenching at times. In short, it’s entertaining.”
OTC’s “A Christmas Carol” is an original adaptation written by Herbert. The cast features 26 actors, including seven 5th graders, who play 56 different roles. Herbert plans to make the play an annual tradition at OTC, and he hopes to revise and refine the script each year.
