lonestarcarolA Lone Star Christmas Carol will be playing on December 18 from 8 – 10:15 p.m. at the Brauntex Theatre.

The story often follows Scrooge, a grumpy, stingy man who doesn’t understand the spirit of Christmas. After ghosts show him Christmas past, present and future, he just might have a change of heart.

This annual production is a bit different every time, and this year it has a Texas twang! A Texas band and singers from Dallas and Austin will accompany a storyteller throughout this heartfelt Christmas tale. Tap your boots along, and feel the joy!
