Charles Dickens' A Christmas. Carol

Dec. 02 - Dec. 10

Jimbo Moore, Zoe McCloud (via Tablerock)Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol” – A Salado Christmas Tradition

Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol was written 179 years ago (1843), about the time Texas was stirring to life and works were underway to establish the Robertson Colony. Salado, itself, was contemporaneous with Dickens's most productive period, having been established in 1860. The great Dickens passed away in 1870, and we are all the better for having had him on this earth.

This Central Texas holiday tradition has been on stage at the Goodnight Amphitheater in Salado for 30 years and is truly a family tradition for the Salado and surrounding communities. It was adapted for the stage by Harry Sweet and is directed by Thom Wilson.

The Tablerock Festival production of “A Christmas Carol” is the wonderful tale of the transformation of Scrooge from a miserly old skinflint into a caring and giving soul – told in drama as Dickens wrote it. Come and enjoy one of Central Texas’s special yuletide traditions right here in Salado! God Bless us everyone!
