Join Earthen Vessels Drama for its bi-annual production of A Christmas Carol. Come see this redemptive adaptation of Dickens’ classic story at the historic King Opera House, located at 427 Main Street in Van Buren, Nov. 30-Dec. 3.
This adaptation of A Christmas Carol is a little different than Dickens’ traditional “ghostly little book”. As in the original story, Scrooge realizes what his life has become, and literally comes to the end of himself. But instead of merely deciding to change his miserly ways, our Scrooge chooses to make God the center of his life, and “nothing will ever be the same again!”
Show-times are 7 p.m. on Nov 30 and Dec. 1, 2 p.m. at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 and 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 3.
An Epic Christmas
An Epic Christmas will be performed by the Fort Smith Symphony at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at the ArcBest Performing Arts Center in Fort Smith.
Featuring only the best for the holidays, the symphony’s Christmas guest artists include Don Bailey, Fort Smith Symphony Principal Clarinetist Andrew DeBoer, vocalist Jeffrey Murdock, and members of the Western Arkansas Ballet.
A special feature will be music from the Trans Siberian OrchestraTM performed by “JOLT,” the Fort Smith Symphony’s electronic quartet, and spectacular film scores from the epic religious films, The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hu
