An Early Christmas Present

Posted by – Dale Mathes, Code Enforcement Officer

Yes, it’s just past Halloween and not quite Thanksgiving but Meadow Brook Theater on the campus of Oakland University has an early gift for everyone.  It is the annual production of Charles Dickins’ immortal holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.”

Christmas Carol

From November 14th through December 21st, the theater will perform the play on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  There are two performances on Saturday and Sunday, an afternoon matinee and an evening show.  Tickets are available at the Meadow Brook box office or on-line at

I have seen this production in the past and it is as good as anything on Broadway. The scenery, costumes, acting, sound and special effects are all first-rate.  It is also suitable for all ages.

So, don’t say “Humbug.” Spend an enjoyable afternoon or evening and support a venerable local institution.  And Merry (early) Christmas!
