A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, performance at Two Rivers Correctional Institution December 9 and 16, 2017

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Our theater group is in the midst of their performances. It has been a moving experience to be a member of the audience. We have been entertained with the warm, harmonic tones of an a cappella group of men singing Christmas carols and we have been brought to tears as we witnessed the story of a man who lived a lonely miserly life that found his turning point, bringing an abundance of love and generosity to others. After the play, there is always a talk back session. This time the men shared what they saw as their turning point, or as Scrooge in the play experienced it, their tombstone moment.
