The Walpole Players are pleased to announce their Fourth Annual production of Charles Dickens’ classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL in The Helen Miller Theater at the Walpole Town Hall December 14, 15, 16, and 17, 2011 as its gift to the community. 
The performance will begin at 7 PM when Mr. Charles Dickens arrives to read his classic tale.  In conjunction with Dickens’ reading, the Players uniquely and magically perform twelve scenes from the story as the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future escort Scrooge through his redemption and transformation.  In the keeping of the Christmas Spirit, as learned by Ebenezer Scrooge, the performances will be held to benefit the Fall Mountain Food Shelf and Our Place Drop-In Center which have both long provided meals and needed groceries to people in Alstead, Acworth, Bellows Falls, Langdon, North Walpole, Saxtons River, Walpole, and Westminster.  Admission is free, but tickets are required because of limited space. 
Tickets are available at Real to Reel, Galloway Real Estate, Village Square Booksellers, Costume Ladies, Murray’s and Jake’s.   In lieu of paid admission, the Players are asking each person attending to make a monetary donation to the Fall Mountain Food Shelf and Our Place Drop-In Center.    Donations from the first three years of The Walpole Players' production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL have raised $8,590.74 for those in need.  For further information call: Ray Boas 603 756-4545 or Tara Sad 603 756-4861
