Imagine it's the dead of night on a cold, dark Christmas Eve and you are visited by the ghost of someone you once knew. This ghost challenges you to face your faults and re-evaluate your purpose in life by showing you glimpses of your past, present and future. You have no choice but to realize how your decisions have affected those that love you. It is no wonder that Charles Dickens' “A Christmas Carol” is still relevant in modern times and remains a classic favorite to this day. During a season that represents the spirit of giving, like Ebenezer Scrooge, we are reminded to think of others.

John Stockton, who plays the Ghost of Christmas Present, describes the play as a story of “self-forgiveness” and “redemption.” He emphasizes that the play is “a moving story and a classic for all ages,” a production that everyone in the community can enjoy.
