Middletown library to host live presentation of 'A Christmas Carol'

As a Christmas gift to its patrons and the community, the Middletown/Fall Creek Public Library will host a live presentation of “A Christmas Carol” at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 18, at the library, 780 High St. There is no charge.

The program, presented by the Minnetrista Theatre Preserves, is the classic story of the selfish Ebenezer Scrooge, who learns the real meaning of life as he is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. The story of how Scrooge is reformed defines our idea of the Christmas spirit, said one reviewer.

“We have the best patrons and the best community and we just wanted to do something special for the people of Middletown,” said Teresa Dennis, library director. “This story really puts you in the holiday spirit, so we hope people will come and enjoy the show.”

The Charles Dickens story has special meaning for the Minnetrista Center in Muncie because Ball Brothers gave a special edition of “A Christmas Carol” to its employees at the holiday in 1925. To honor that long-ago gift, the play’s backdrop features a huge image of that 1920s book cover.

The 45-minute show is suitable for all ages and features two actors, Mason Absher and Keith Overall. The play has been popular this holiday season with presentations at several libraries in East Central Indiana.
