Granite Theatre in Westerly offers 'Christmas Carol' inside and outdoors
Ebenezer Scrooge is taking his act on the road … or at least to Wilcox Park.
The Granite Theatre in Westerly is not only staging the classic “A Christmas Carol” inside its theater; it’s also presenting it as a walking tour in the park on Dec. 11.
In that latter version, titled "Ghost Tours in the Park: A Christmas Carol Story," Scrooge serves as a guide on the tour, and he’ll be visited by some familiar ghosts: Marley’s ghost, and ghosts of Christmases past, present and yet to come. He also crosses paths with townsfolk and even some carolers.
While the tour is a one-night event, audiences can see “A Christmas Carol” inside the Granite from Friday through Dec. 19.
Patrons in the theater will be asked to wear a mask and show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test. Additional safety measures may be put into effect as needed. The house is working at full capacity.
“A Christmas Carol,” Friday-Dec. 19, Granite Theatre, 1 Granite St., Westerly; 7:30 p.m. Fri. and Sat., 2 p.m. Sun.; $20; (401) 596-2341, granitetheatre.com.
“Ghost Tours in the Park: A Christmas Carol Story,” 3-6 p.m. Dec. 11, Wilcox Park, 44 Broad St., Westerly; tour groups leave every 15 minutes; by donation; (401) 596-2341, granitetheatre.com.
