A Christmas Carol
Don’t miss this unique theatrical experience of Charles Dickens’ timeless tale A Christmas Carol inside the McConaghy House. The audience moves from room to room following actors and musicians as they bring the story to life. This one hour show will combine the telling of Dickens' ghost story with the home’s preserved Victorian-era beauty in a celebration of the Christmas spirit. Join the performers after the show for a merry cup of hot cider.
Performances will take place on Saturdays, December 8, 15, and 22 at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.
Regular tickets are $25, and $15 for Hayward Area Historical Society members. Seating at these events is limited. To purchase tickets, all 510-581-0223.
