A Pay-What-You-Can Event Announced At Swift Creek Mill Theatre

A Pay-What-You-Can Event Announced At Swift Creek Mill TheatreRegularly priced tickets to "A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol" at Swift Creek Mill are $40; however, at Pay-What-You-Can on November 15, the price is up to the audience members.

The Mill is committed to making live, professional theatre accessible to all audiences, regardless of budget. Managing Director Steven Koehler has had success with similar programs at other theatres, in more urban environments. Perhaps that is why this program is so important: the need for arts exposure is tremendous in the surrounding areas.

Mr. Koehler adds, "To experience live theatre is a life changing event. In the hectic holiday season, after a contentious election season, we can all use a break. We hope that without financial restraints, people who may not normally attend will come out to enjoy this festive performance of "A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol" as much as we enjoyed producing it."

In this long-awaited sequel to the popular musical "The 1940s Radio Hour," it's Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are now broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, New Jersey. The company's take on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol descends into all the comedic mayhem and madness of a live radio show, resulting in a heart-warming dramatic climax.

The November 15 performance of "A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol" starts at 8 PM. Doors open at 7 PM. Admission is on a first-come, first served basis. There is no dinner service that evening. Seats are available at the door only.

Swift Creek Mill is one of the oldest registered landmarks in the nation and is home to historic Swift Creek Mill Theatre, a not-for-profit that has been providing Central and Southside Virginia professional performing arts for over 50 years. "The Mill," as patrons call it, has long been a beacon for cultural arts and a trusted resource in the area. Find out more at swiftcreekmill.com.
