Thursday, December 14 at 7:00pm (play at 7:30 pm) We all know the classic Dickens, A Christmas Carol. But what if the story was set years later in Appalachia and old Eb Scrooge owned the local coal mine? What if Bob Cratchit helped organize the mine workers and Fezziwig’s holiday party took place with local music and playing live onstage? Spinning the traditional ghost story and tale of redemption, An Appalachian Christmas Carol honors rich coal mining and labor union heritage, while simultaneously celebrating the spirit of the season. This is a joyful story of redemption, rooted in rural storytelling and intertwined with regional traditional music. Join us before the show for a special Pre-Show performance by The Local Honeys as part of the 2017-2018 Something Extra Series. The Local Honeys are comprised of Linda Jean Stokley and Montana Hobbs. Stokley from the rolling hills of the Bluegrass, and Hobbs from the foothills of the Appalachian region have developed a sweet sound of the bluegrass kissing the mountains. They have dedicated themselves to the preservation of old music and the creation of new music.
