River Union Stage is pleased to share the holiday spirit with their 10th annual reading of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL to benefit local food pantries on Saturday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church of Milford, 70 Bridge Street, Milford, NJ. As in previous years, admission is free with a donation of a non-perishable food item for local food pantries in Frenchtown and Milford, NJ.
The performance will take place with the generous support of Shop Rite of Hunterdon and as part of the Christmas in Milford celebration which includes a 10% discount good at nearly a dozen shops and restaurants in and around Milford for everyone who attends the reading. Presented in reader’s theatre style, audiences will have the opportunity to experience the beautiful prose narrative as well as the more familiar dialogue of Dickens’ classic work.
Food donations will be distributed by the Presbyterian Church to food pantries in Milford and Frenchtown. Please check to be sure all donations are not beyond their expiration date for freshness. Checks made out to a specific food pantry will also be accepted. For a list of needed items, visit milfordpresbyterian.org/mission/.
Funding has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through funds administered by the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
