DUBOIS – Nothing ushers in the Christmas season better than a theatric classic, as the Reitz Theater, DuBois, wraps up its 20th anniversary season with the holiday favorite, “A Christmas Carol.”

Director Sharon Jerashen is excited to bring this classic to the Reitz Theater stage and is very proud of her cast and crew. She said, “The show is comprised of an extremely talented group of 30 people, ranging in age from 5 years to 50 years.
