Give a Kid A Book at A Christmas Carol

Tonight a time-honored tradition returns to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center with NTC PRODUCTIONS A Christmas Carol. Dickens' "ghostly little tale" and its classic characters like Tiny Tim and Ebenezer Scrooge make for a great evening of holiday entertainment, but tonight, there's a chance to give back too.
Before the performance, ticket holders are invited to an Appleton Papers Inc. Community Engagement Activity featuring a presentation by Amy Stanwood from the Appleton Public Library. Before you see the show and its period sets and costumes, learn about Victorian holiday traditions and how they are woven throughout Charles Dickens’ classic tale.
In partnership with the Appleton Public Library, the Center will also be collecting books for Appleton Public Library’s Give a Child a Book drive. If you're inspired by the holiday season to help those less fortunate, bring along a new, unwrapped book appropriate for children up to age 18 and share the joy of reading this holiday season.

To learn more about tonight's performance, visit Enjoy the show!
