All new play hits the Dickens stage

Posted 11/03/09 (Tue)


An all new play with an all new twist comes to the Kota Theater when Sakakawea Area Council of the Arts presents "A Christmas Carol.”

But hold on to your petticoats, boys and girls, this version is a musical.

The 2013 version will delight all audience members, whether they have seen it a dozen times or taking it in for the very first time. The story never grows old and never disappoints.

Ticket sales begin Monday, Nov. 11 online, by telephone or by calling 1-800-799-4242 or 1-701-463-2345 to reserve your $15 seat. The play is performed Nov. 29, 30, Dec. 6, 7, 13 and 14. There is no play Sunday, Dec. 1, although the festival will be in full swing.
