A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE MUSICAL
A Classic Beginning to Christmas
Come one and all; begin the Christmas Holiday season with a musical flare! Charlotte's Andromeda Community Theatre, under the direction of Sarah Shoemaker, will present the classic tale of Scrooge and Tiny Tim, A Christmas Carol. In conjunction with the Charlotte Performing Art Center there is to be a limited, single weekend, presentation of the story we all know, we all love, from Charles Dickens. This will truly be an event to be experienced by the entire family as well as a treasured memory to be shared.
This classic tale has been remade into a Broadway musical by Alan Menken (Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island). Follow the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge from the crotchety old miser into a new and compassionate man as he rediscovers the forgotten joys of life. With the help of Tiny Tim, and three spirits who show him results from the errors of his ways, you will be entertained, moved, and learn the true meaning of the holiday spirit. This will prove to be the finest way to begin the holiday season -
Sarah Shoemaker has brought together over 40 very talented cast members to bring this story to life. She has drawn on her years of personal experience in directing, voice and choreography to provide a unique and most exciting program. There promises to be large dance scenes woven in with splendid musical numbers. And of course there is always the omnipresent Scrooge trying to foil or understand the entire change. This will prove to be an entertaining night for all who can attend.
The single weekend date is Friday December 2nd and two showings on Saturday 3rd at Charlotte’s vast and inspiring Performing Arts Center at Charlotte High School. Tickets are expected to sell quickly so plan ahead and purchase early. You do not want to find yourself a week later wishing you could have attended.

Andromeda Community Theatre is proud to present Agatha Christie’s thrilling courtroom drama "Witness For The Prosecution". In this riveting show, a wealthy woman is murdered. The suspected murderer? Her sole heir. Called to testify is his wife – not for the defense, but for the prosecution! Will she seal his fate, or will her testimony set him free?
All performances will be held in the courtroom at the historic 1885 Courthouse Museum in downtown Charlotte, at 100 W Lawrence Ave.
Performances begin May 26th and will continue through June 4th.
AGATHA CHRISTIE’S “WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION”
Andromeda Community Theatre is proud to present the hilariously entertaining "Check Please" and "Check Please Take 2" by Jonathan Rand, which will be combined into one fabulous show! "Check Please" follows a series of disastrously bad blind dates. These bad dates include your grandma's bridge partner and a kleptomaniac, just to name a couple.
Directed by Patrick Monroe, "Check Please/Check Please Take 2" will be performed as a dinner theatre at the Eaton Area Senior Center on Friday October 20th and Saturday October 21st (Sweetest Day Weekend).
With each show Andromeda Community Theatre will be giving away a beautiful heart necklace, courtesy of Carl V. Reck Jewelers in Charlotte (106 S. Cochran). Each of these necklaces has a retail value of over $100! (http://www.carlreck.com/)
To celebrate Sweetest Day, tickets will be discounted for couples.
Individual Ticket: $30
