It’s getting close to that time of year: time to deck the halls, ready the gift wrap, enjoy – or perhaps endure, based on standpoint – the jolly music playing through every radio and crowded store speakerphones, stuff yourself with turkey and candy canes, and give a little generosity. It’s the Holiday Season! Alexan Auburn Apartments wants to make sure that you make the most out of Christmas every year, though this particular year the Alley Theater in Downtown Houston will be performing the classic tale A Christmas Carol. It’s perfect for people of all ages, and it’s only a half mile drive to reach there, so you can bring your whole family with ease.
The Alley Theater is a nonprofit performance venue that focuses on plays or musicals that are either newly written or do not receive the attention that they deserve, bringing them into light and even sending some productions as far as Broadway. Award winning for its innovation and wide range of shows – from Shakespeare to Miller to contemporary artists – it’s a great theater to watch great performances all at an affordable price. There are also classes available for young, aspiring actors, as well as internships that are offered to students who are attending or have recently graduated from college.
Following the Charles Dickens’ story of the same name, A Christmas Carol is a tale about an older man named Ebenezer Scrooge, who has become disillusioned from the idea of Christmas spirit, charity, and good will. Over the course of the story he is haunted by three spirits, all of whom show different aspects of time in his life, and Scrooge learns the importance of generosity and kindness over greed and materialism. The show begins on November 19th and continues on through December 29th, so you have plenty of opportunities to see this with your family before the holiday season ends. Ticket vary from $30-$70 per seat, and it’s recommended you buy tickets early to guarantee the seats you want, for they sell out fast. Special shows are available as well, such as the InterACT performance on December 1st, where you can interact with other theater enthusiasts over concessions and drinks before the show, and the captioned performace on December 4th for the deaf and hard of hearing.
So get into the Christmas spirit with one of the most memorable tales of the season. Visit Alexan Auburn Lakes apartments to find the flat best suited for your needs, and then attend A Christmas Carol at Alley Theater this holiday.
