For families and patrons of all ages!
Celebrate the holidays at the Bowie Center for the Performing Arts with our original production of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL, adapted and directed by Christopher Dwyer.
Step back in time to Victorian London for a magical tale of ghosts, a change of heart, and the true meaning of the holidays! Audiences of all ages will be charmed by this much-loved holiday story vividly brought to life by a cast featuring professional actors and musicians from across the DMV with local talent of all ages.
