A Christmas Carol / The 12 Dates of Christmas

A Christmas Carol

Anthony P. Rodriguez is back for an eighth year with his mesmerizing solo performance of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. Not unlike what Charles Dickens himself did in the 1800’s, Mr. Rodriguez focuses on the classic art of storytelling, using his voice and mannerisms to bring to life Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley and the remarkable ghosts found in the greatest Christmas story of all time.

The exhilarating one-man Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol returns for a limited 4 week engagement. Nestled in the intimate 80-seat Gwinnett Federal Credit Union Studio, the theatre is transformed to make you feel as though Mr. Dickens has personally invited you into his parlor. Although a few amazing theatrical effects have been added, this rendition captures the true spirit of Christmas–the joy of giving. The story is adapted for the stage and directed by Tony Brown. Audiences will remember Mr. Brown from his memorable turns on the Aurora Theatre Stage (Merlin in Camelot, Colonel Mustard in Clue: The Musical).

The Festival of Trees

In the lobby for Christmas Canteen 2014, Aurora’s Festival of Trees supports both the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots drive and local food banks. From the whimsically clever to the breathtakingly spectacular, the Festival of Trees decks the halls of Aurora Theatre with almost 30 trees decorated by local businesses. All are encouraged to cast a vote for their favorite tree with a new unwrapped toy or a non-perishable food item to help ensure that everyone has a great holiday season. Generous thanks to the Holtkamp Can Challenge who handles the food drive delivering much needed food to our local food banks.
