Columbia State and the Lyceum Committee are proud to announce the return of one of our best guest artists. Mark Cabus a splendid character actor who has worked in the region for over 20 years (TPAC, films including John Grisham works and lately Selma!) returns for his enchanting and beguiling rendition of A Christmas Carol. Cabus plays over 20 different parts in the hour and a half long production and audiences are held spellbound when he transforms the friendly and intimate Ledbetter Auditorium into the domain of Ebenezer Scrooge and a series of ghosts!!!!! The audience can get involved if they wish, and there are songs and joyous merrymaking for all. Everyone needs to sit close around the fire of the ledbetter stage!!! This is a show and one of the few times during the holidays when people can celebrate the joy of mankind and the season of kindness and forgiveness and return to the roots of the Christmas holiday. Few know that Dickens himself was largely responsible for the return of the Christmas holiday. By the 1840s many people did not celebrate Christmas in a robust fashion, and people simply saw the holiday as a meal in the dead of winter. Dickens felt the holiday needed renovation, so he wrote A Christmas Carol to make people remember the wonder and nostalgia and humanity of the era. He accomplished his task reviving the Christmas season. Due largely to Dickens Christmas became the center of the Christian holiday season elevating all holidays around it. Join us for a profound and moving performance by one of our greatest actors. A treasure for the whole family and wonderful innovative solo theatre by a master of the craft....It will be worth the evening out!!!
