A Christmas Carol benefiting the Academy Scholarship Fund
Charles Dickens Presents: A Christmas Carol was a success. The response from the children and the parents was overwhelmingly positive, from the first day of rehearsal all the way up to the final performance. It was a pure joy to watch these children grow and mature during this process, and an even greater joy to see their beaming faces after the performance. They did a fantastic job.
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?
Every single one of these wreaths was created and then donated to Spokane Civic Theatre by the Spokane Civic Theatre Volunteers. When you come to see good old Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, you can purchase drawing tickets for either $1 each or 8 tickets for $5, 20 for $10 and lastly 50 for $20. Then you simply walk around the the lobby of Spokane Civic Theatre and drop the tickets in the bags associated with the wreaths you want. So, simple! We will draw winners on December 19th.
So, yes, the Spokane Civic Theatre Volunteers and the cast and crew of A Christmas Carol all know it’s Christmas time at all….
PS - loving the clock wreath.

Our thanks to the The Spokesman-Review for this excerpt from their recent article summing up upcoming Spokane stage events.
Spokane Civic Theatre – This is where you’ll find both of the aforementioned Gothic governesses, one from the pen of Henry James, the other from the pen of Charlotte Bronte.
But first, we’ll meet a vivacious ’20s flapper in the musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie” on the Main Stage, Sept. 23-Oct. 23.
You might remember Millie Dillmount from the 1967 movie. This is the musical version of her story, which became a 2002 Broadway hit. Expect a lot of toe-tapping songs and some big tap numbers. Kathie Doyle-Lipe and Greg Pschirrer direct.
That will be followed on the Main Stage by a new version of “A Christmas Carol,” Nov. 18-Dec. 18. You’ll see all of the great Dickens characters – and a few puppets, as well. Troy Nickerson directs.
Over in the Firth J. Chew Studio Theatre, Henry James’ literary ghost story “The Turn of the Screw” runs Oct. 21-Nov. 13. It has a two-person cast, with one actress playing the governess and another playing all of the other roles. Susan Hardie directs.
We’ll meet the other governess in the Civic’s annual musical-in-concert fundraiser, “Jane Eyre,” Oct. 28-29 on the Main Stage. This is the Paul Gordon musical that arrived on Broadway in 2000. Yvonne A.K. Johnson directs.
Overall, the Civic has been on an upswing in terms of both audience and quality. Johnson said season ticket sales exceed last year’s record pace.
