Amphitheatre adds Christmas production to season

From local sources

LINCOLN CITY — The Lincoln Boyhood Drama Association, the managing nonprofit for the 1,500-seat Lincoln Amphitheatre, will produce a Christmas-themed play in December.

“Scrooge’s Christmas,” written and directed by Ken Jones, playwright  and director of “A. Lincoln: A Pioneer’s Tale,” will run in conjunction with two of the three Santa Claus Christmas Celebration Saturdays. “Scrooge’s Christmas” is adapted from Charles Dickens’ classic tale, “A Christmas Carol.”
“”˜Scrooge’s Christmas’ is a dynamic adaptation utilizing a company of actors, through multiple roles, telling the classic story. Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future as they teach him the true meaning of the Christmas Spirit,” Jones says, adding that audiences should expect humor mixed with the drama of “A Christmas Carol” in a shortened, one-hour production.

“It’s a fun version of the story, and it’s perfect for families,” Jones says.

Since December tends to bring colder weather, the drama association will host “Scrooge’s Christmas” at the Heritage Hills High School Auditorium at 1, 3 and 6 p.m. CST Dec. 14 and 21. Ticket prices are $10 a person, $8 a person for groups of 10 or more. All proceeds will benefit Lincoln Amphitheatre.
Tickets are available online at, by phone at 800-264-4223 and at the door before each performance.
