Here at Virginia Stage Company, one of our favorite season is...Christmastime! (Anyone else?) We love Dickens' A Christmas Carol, and we know that you do too! It's become a wonderful holiday tradition for those of us that put it together every year. So much so, that it just doesn't feel like the holidays until the rehearsals have started.
Virginia Stage has been presenting this classic story for 35 years, and even though actors, creative teams, company staff, and even the adaptation changes every few years, the message and the spirit of Ebenezer Scrooge's transformation still resonates.
For us, this timeless story of change is particularly relevant this season. Our staff has been in a state of transition as we adjust our leadership team and bring in a new Producing Artistic Director. We've moved to new administration offices this calendar year. And our lovely home theater, the historic Wells Theatre, has been undergoing renovation. But we're happy to say that we will be back in the Wells to open A Christmas Carol! (YAY!)
So this year, we'd like to hear from you. We know why we love bringing you Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol every year, which you'll hear more about in the coming weeks. But what we'd like to know is...
What do you love about attending A Christmas Carol at the Wells each year with your family as a part of your holiday traditions?
Let us know and be entered into a drawing to win a "Welcome Back to the Wells" Subscription for the remaining three productions this season. (What a great Christmas gift!) Your tradition may be featured on our blog and social media!
Videos and photos will get multiple entries in the drawing. (Send us awesome videos! Extra points for families in ugly Christmas sweaters. Just kidding. Maybe.) Send us your photos with a paragraph (300 words or less) describing your traditional visit to the Wells or make a video and tag us on social media. Send your tradition story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
