CAST Christmas Festival

The Museum is excited to host the Crossroads Area Student Theatre Christmas Festival during the holiday season! CAST performances of “A Dickens Christmas Festival” will be held in various rooms throughout the entire Museum. Inspired by Merry Old England (with emphasis on the merry), the Museum will be filled with characters straight from the pages of the classic works of Charles Dickens. Visitors will find Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Oliver, and many more, as the following three plays will be presented at various times during the festival—Bah Humbug, The Cratchit Family, and Dickens in America. Notable characters will have collector cards to handout to any young adoring fans. Performances are scheduled during F1rst Fr1day/Once Upon a Holiday on December 6, from 2:00-8:00 p.m., during the Museum’s annual Christmas at the Courthouse on Saturday, December 7, 12:00-4:00 p.m., and an encore presentation on Tuesday, December 10, 5:30-9:00 p.m. The best part yet is it’s all free and filled with reminders of the true reason for the season.

Crossroads Area Student Theatre is a not-for-profit, 501c3 company in its sixth season serving students across McLean County. Membership in the company is a yearlong commitment, with students ages 7 to 19 and their families joining for a season of theater productions. Learn more at www.CASTBN.org
