Christmas music began playing in public spaces even before Thanksgiving this year, but now that the calendar has officially flipped over to December, the evening temperatures are near freezing and the smell of chimney smoke wafts through the air, it’s safe to say Renton is in full holiday mode.
The Renton Civic Theatre is doing it’s part by hosting the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of A Christmas Carol by David McGillivary and Walter Zerlin, Jr.
The show promises a heady mix of ingenuity and incompetence as the plot follows four ladies and one slightly reluctant man as they portray the characters in Dickens’ timeless production . . . and them some as the characters embellish the classic storyline. If you’ve managed to skirt the holiday spirit, get ready for full immersion.
Bundle up and hurry downtown for the show, which opens Friday, Dec. 2 and runs through Dec. 17. Shows are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults and $17 for seniors and students. Call the box office at (425) 226-5529, or visit www.rentoncivictheatre.org for tickets.
