A Message from Scrooge Himself: 'No Tickets? Come Anyway!'

Don't have tickets to the final four performances of "A Christmas Carol" at NDNU Theatre? Bah humbug! History shows that even Scrooge himself can get in on the waiting list----but be sure to bring a donation of a toy or non-perishable foo

Michael Elkins, aka "Mr. Scrooge",  would like to remind everyone who hasn't yet experienced the magic of "A Christmas Carol" at NDNU Theatre, that there are still four (free!) performances to go. (Dec. 14-16; see times below)

And, Elkins says that even though the box office has distributed tickets for the four final performances, keep the Christmas spirit and don't be discouraged.

"We want to remind people without tickets that we start a waiting list one hour before the performances....historically, nearly everyone who is on this list gets admitted....so tell folks to come by," said Elkins.

So, if you don't have tickets, simply arrive at the box office one hour before the performance and put your name on the waiting list. You will be notified 15 minutes before the show.

And, in exchange for being treated to this marvelous show, Mr. Scrooge requests that you bring an unwrapped toy or non-perishable food item, which will be donated to the less fortunate in our community. The photos to the right are the toys and food collected during last weekend's performances.

This is a wonderful show. Our family went for the first time last year and were amazed by the quality of the performances and wondered why we had not gone before. It's a great community event. We plan to make it an ongoing tradition.

This show is an incredible blessing to our Belmont Community. Our family has been involved for 20+ years on the stage, behind it, and as part of the standing ovation at the end! I highly recommend everyone treat themselves and see it.
