Everyone invited to an evening of dramatic reading and singing in aid of the food bank

LEWISPORTE, NL — Keeping with the season of sharing, a cast of characters from the community will present a dramatic reading of the Charles Dickens classic, “A Christmas Carol”.

The evening will feature a cast of 15 who will portray all of the well-known characters from Ebenezer Scrooge to Bob Cratchit to Tiny Tim.

The event, scheduled to take place at St. Matthew’s United Church on Friday, Dec. 8, will also feature various choirs and musicians presenting a variety of old-time Christmas carols. The audience is encouraged to join in the festive singing.

Coordinator Bert Harding noted that the evening will be in support of the food bank in Lewisporte, which recently reopened its doors at its new location on Main Street. There is no admission charge. A freewill offering will be accepted at the event for the food bank.
