LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- North Little Rock West Campus Speech and Drama Department is proud to be teaming up with the Open Arms Shelter to present the holiday musical classic, "A Christmas Carol". A portion of the proceeds will go to help folks who live and work with Open Arms.
Here's more on the production from a press release:
"In A Christmas Carol, Scrooge learns the importance of giving and caring for our fellow men. We, at the Speech and Drama department, are taking this to heart in a number of wonderful ways through this production. We are feverishly knitting scarves, hats, and mittens for our set dressing that will in turn be donated to the Arkansas Children's Hospital.
"We are asking audience members to donate canned goods and non-perishable items to assist the Gardner Food Pantry of North Little Rock. And as previously stated, we are donating a portion of our proceeds to the Open Arms Shelter.
"We are so excited to be able to reach out to our community in many different ways and that our production teaches this very lesson."
Justin Klucher, student actor and Brandon Higdem, director of A Christmas Carol stop by "THV 11 News This Morning" to talk more about the production.
