'Tis the Season...For Plays and Holiday Concerts
‘Tis the season….for plays and holiday concerts.

A busy month for Unadilla Valley Central School is now underway as students hone their singing, musical and acting chops for several productions.

The UV Drama Club will take the stage first with its adaptation of a Christmas Carol on Dec. 9 and Dec. 10. The Secondary School Winter Concert is slated for 7 p.m., Wednesday Dec. 14 in the auditorium. And our younger students will present a finale in the form of the Elementary School Winter Concert at 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 15 in the auditorium.

The UV Drama Club will present "A Christmas Carol’’ – but with a twist.

The Charles Dickens classic Christmas tale is told through a young boy’s grandfather. Thomas enjoys spending time at his grandfather’s prominent London business, but has trouble understanding why his grandfather would give his hard-earned money to the poor. This gives Grandfather the perfect opportunity to tell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge as he recalls it, and a traditional retelling of “A Christmas Carol” comes to life onstage as a play-within-a-play.

As the story goes, of course, revelations brought by visiting his past, present, and future with three ghosts persuade Scrooge to turn his life around. In this beautifully written adaptation, you’ll find all of the classic Charles Dickens characters, including Jacob Marley, Scrooge’s sister Fan and even his long-lost Belle. The play ends uniquely with a heartwarming surprise for all as we learn who Thomas’ grandfather really is.

Come and enjoy the UVCS production of “A Christmas Carol” at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9 and 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10. Tickets are $3 for students and seniors and $5 for adults.
