The Hampstead Stage Company, a national professional touring theatre company from Center Barnstead, NH, will perform a family-friendly adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol on Saturday, December 9th (11am) at the Amelia Community Theatre. Recommended for ages 5 and up, this free public performance is brought to us by the Friends of the Library. A Christmas Carol is a timeless story with a universal message about the true spirit of the holiday season and the importance of friends and family. The tale follows the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his clerk, Bob Cratchit, during a particularly difficult Christmastime. Through visits from three spirits, Scrooge learns the true meaning of helping his fellow man, and that there is no time like the present to become a better person. Besides being a feel-good story about love and friendship, this adaptation educates the audience about the class system of Victorian England and encourages them to help others who are less fortunate.
