Live Performance of “A Christmas Carol” Coming to Three MLS Libraries


Since its initial publication 168 years ago, a certain novella by Charles Dickens has become as much of a holiday tradition as wrapped presents, mistletoe, and decorated trees.

The Metropolitan Library System and Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park invite your family to enjoy their presentation of “A Christmas Carol” at three MLS libraries in November and December.  All performances are free and everyone is welcome.

“At Christmas time,” said MLS Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow, “everyone is allowed to get at least a little sentimental, and nothing gets to the emotions like Dickens’ wonderful story of Scrooge and Tiny Tim.  You might want to bring your own hankie.”

The schedule for “A Christmas Carol” is:

Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park is supported by generous gifts from the Oklahoma Arts Council, Devon Energy, the Kirkpatrick Foundation, the Kirkpatrick Family Fund, Chesapeake Energy, Allied Arts, Oklahoma City Community Foundation, the Inasmuch Foundation, and UMB Bank.
