Theatre Coppell — Inspecting Carol by Daniel Sullivan and the Seattle Repertory Theatre

November 30 – December 2  |   Friday and Saturday 8 pm and Sunday 2:30pm   |   Theatre Coppell

A small professional theatre has been doing "A Christmas Carol" every Christmas, mainly to raise money. Ticket sales are down, however, and their regular cast is growing older and less suited for their parts. Typical of their problems is Tiny Tim, now 17 years old and a bit too big to be carried on Cratchit's shoulders. The expected arrival of an evaluator from the National Endowment of the Arts only complicates things and everything that can go wrong, does. It's funny as the Dickens.

Reservations are available at TheatreCoppell.com or by calling 972-745-7719. Performances are at the Center for the Arts, 157 S. Moore Rd., Coppell.
