Downtown Performing Arts Center of Lambertville Presents Two Christmas Shows 12/19-21

The Downtown Performing Arts Center of Lambertville, NJ is thrilled to ring in the holiday season with two special productions: A Christmas Carol and A Charlie Brown Christmas. Both shows, set to run during the weekend of Friday, December 19, Saturday, December 20 and Sunday, December 21, will be performed at the South Hunterdon Regional High School Theatre located at 301 Mount Airy-Harbourton Road in Lambertville, New Jersey.

A Christmas Carol ran for ten years at Madison Square Garden and in 2004, became the basis of an NBC Hallmark Entertainment special starring Kelsey Grammer as Ebenezer Scrooge. But even without starry casts and spectacular trappings, this A Christmas Carol retains its emotional power and pure joy, thanks to the marvelously-told story by Mike Ockrent and Lynn Ahrens, and the Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens score filled with beautiful melodies and emotional lyrics. In fact, their song "A Place Called Home" has become a holiday standard.

A Christmas Carol features several actors who return to perform in this annual production. Lambertville resident David Whiteman reprises the role of Ebenezer Scrooge, a part he first played in 2010. David has performed extensively on Pennsylvania and New Jersey stages and appeared this past summer in numerous productions at the Washington Crossing Open Air Theatre. Louis Palena will again play Bob Cratchit. Louis has entertained audiences on both sides of the Delaware River for almost two decades and is the Artistic Director for the Washington Crossing Open Air Theatre. Jenny Johnson, also of Lambertville, returns to portray Mrs. Fezziwig. The cast of A Christmas Carol is rounded out by Jill Palena, Jay Casale, Damian Bartolacci and many of the performers from the Washington Crossing Open Air Theatre.

A Christmas Carol will be performed on Friday, December 19 at 7:30 pm, Saturday, December 20 at 3 pm and 7:30 pm and Sunday, December 21 at 3 pm. Tickets are $18.00 for adults, $13.00 for children (12 and under) and seniors.

Especially for the kids, A Charlie Brown Christmas on Saturday, December 20 at 11 am and 1 pm. Tickets are $6 for children and adults.

Based on the holiday television special and featuring Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the Peanuts gang, A Charlie Brown Christmas touches on the commercialization of Christmas and serves to remind audiences of the true meaning of the season.

The Downtown Performing Arts Center's productions of A Christmas Carol and A Charlie Brown Christmas will be performed on Friday, December 19 through Sunday, December 21 at the South Hunterdon Regional High School Theatre located at 301 Mount Airy-Harbourton Rd. in Lambertville, New Jersey. Tickets for A Christmas Carol may be purchased in advance online at www.downtownpac.com. Tickets for both productions will also be available at the door prior to each performance.
