The Skagit Valley's favorite holiday tradition is back and promises an experience that is more magical than ever. Come share the joy of the holiday season, as our theatre transforms into a page right out of the classic tale by Charles Dickens. Richly textured sets, ornate costumes and spectacular special effects will transport the entire family into the tale of the grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge, who requires the intervention of a few ghostly guides to find the true meaning of Christmas - and life itself.
Theatre Director Roger Gietzen says, "It brings all of us at the Lincoln such joy to return to live performance with our holiday tradition A Christmas Carol. For over 25 years this story, with book by Teresa Vaughn and Brian Young, has brought our community together to experience Scrooge's story of redemption and renewal and it is with deep gratitude, after twenty months of our country's theatres being dark, that we welcome you back and revive this joyous and meaningful tradition."
