HYDE PARK, N.Y. -- Buy your theater tickets and make your Culinary Institute of America restaurant reservations now for a funny, dynamic, and fast-paced adaptation of a favorite holiday classic -- "A Christmas Carol" at the Half Moon Theatre.

Performance dates are Friday, Dec. 11, and Dec. 18 at 8 p.m.; Saturday Dec. 12, and Dec. 19 at 2 p.m and 8 p.m ; Sunday Dec 13 at 2 p.m., and a special performance: Wednesday Dec. 16 at 7 p.m.

In this adaptation by Patrick Barlow, actors bring Charles Dickens' iconic characters to life in this streamlined, re-telling of Scrooge's redemption—from miserly curmudgeon to a generous and kind member of society. Family members of all ages will come together to laugh, shed a tear during the show.

"A Christmas Carol" is directed by Michael Schiralli and features Darrell James as Scrooge, along with Wayne Pyle, Maria Silverman, Shona Tucker, and Ryan Walter—who play all the other characters including Bob Cratchet, Marley, the three Ghosts, and of course, Tiny Tim.

"A Christmas Carol is the perfect holiday show for the whole family," said the theater's Managing Director Kristy Grimes. "We were delighted to discover this exciting adaptation by Patrick Barlow, which premiered at the Delaware Theatre Company in 2012. Barlow highlights the humor and spookiness of the tale — with lots of physicality as the actors have to continually 'transform' into different characters — but without losing the heart of the story. Give your kids their first A Christmas Carol experience, or bring your office mates, clients, or out-of-town guests for a special holiday outing."

Playgoers will also want to consider dining at one of the CIA's award-winning restaurants before the show. Due to overwhelming popular demand, The Culinary Institute of America has agreed to hold a block of pre-theater dinner reservations at three of their award-winning restaurants for the run of this show.

For restaurant reservations, call 945-905-4533 or e-mail . To purchase tickets to "A Christmas Carol," call 1-800-838-3006 or order online at .
