Don't miss Center Stage Theatre's sixth annual production of A Christmas Carol. In this holiday classic, Charles Dickens invents the modern concept of "Christmas Spirit" and offers one of the world's most adapted stories. We know the names Scrooge, Cratchit, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future not only as fictional characters, but as icons of the true meaning of Christmas.
Center Stage Theatre presents a locally written adaptation of the Dickens classic. Written by CST member, Nathan E. Bradshaw, this adaptation is very faithful to the originally novella and represents the classic in a way that many other adaptations cannot. This is the second year that CST has produced this original adaptation and has made many improvements from the last year based on input from their patrons, cast members, and general public to truly make this Goldsboro's own A Christmas Carol.
Tickets: $15/Adults, $12/Students, Seniors, & Military.

Outer Banks Forum to Present First Holiday Special –It’s A Wonderful Life –Live from WVL Radio Theatre on Dec. 8
Experience the nostalgia of the days before TV when skilled actors created the images in the minds of the listeners when It’s A Wonderful Life – Live from WVL Radio Theatre performs this classic holiday favorite Sunday, Dec. 8 at 2:30 p.m., according to Eddie Cooke, president of the Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts. All programs will be held at the First Flight High School in Kill Devil Hills.
“We are excited to bring this classic holiday favorite to the Outer Banks for the first time,” said Cooke. “So, as you make plans during the festivities, be sure to include this special holiday treat for the family – of all ages - on your calendar!”
Almost everyone knows the story of the classic holiday favorite It’s A Wonderful Life. This 1940’s “live broadcast” of Frank Capra’s beloved film takes us back to the Golden Age of Radio. The WVL studio’s “On Air” sign lights up and the heartwarming holiday treasure comes to life through the bygone radio formula of a few hardworking actors, live sound effects – and a listener’s imagination.
It’s the uplifting and bittersweet tale of George Bailey’s close call with death on Christmas Eve, of how important and special he is to all those around him. And what this world would have missed had he not been born. It’s a story about the people of Bedford Falls, about neighbors, friends and family, and about the difference one person makes in so many others’ lives.
The performance is based on Frank Capra’s beloved film, an undisputed holiday treasure, was nominated for five Academy Awards, ranked #11 in the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 best American films ever made - and also their #1 most inspirational American film of all time.
The performance will be presented by the North Carolina Stage Company and Immediate Theatre Project. They began their collaboration with an adaptation of It’s A Wonderful Life in 2006 for a short local run and began a limited tour the following year. Inspired by the terrific response from audiences and critics, they have recently completed this brand new adaptation of Frank Capra’s screenplay. Now more than ever before, they are pleased to present this classic story: a story of struggle in times of crisis, and of the power of a community to weather financial storms.
To purchase a ticket for this concert, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and these tickets will be held at the box office for pick-up. Advance tickets are also available at: Gateway Bank, Southern Shores; and Front Porch Café locations in Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and Manteo. Tickets will also be available for walk-up patrons that evening. Tickets are $15 an adult and $8 a student.
The Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts is a non-profit organization that brings an annual series of seven outstanding diverse concerts to the area and provides opportunities for youth to participate in the arts. All of the performances are partially underwritten by community businesses.

Find new delight in a special holiday party given for families to enjoy participating in and watch as Uncle Drosselmeier gives the magical Nutcracker to his favorite niece, Clara. Go on a dreamlike adventure as Clara is shown her "life to be" in a nutshell...the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets.
Treat your loved ones to Goldsboro Ballet's famous Nutcracker at the Paramount Theatre. Praised by audiences as 'original and exciting,' this marvelously imagined production, created by Goldsboro Ballet's Founding Artistic Director Peggy Wingate and further adapted by Assistant Director Mary Franklin, features over 75 dancers, gigantic sets, a snowfall every performance, and - the magical sound of the season - Tchaikovsky's beloved score. Get dressed to the nines, or come as you are, but reach the very heart of the holidays.
Goldsboro Ballet can proudly lay claim to Wayne County's first and most recognized and celebrated production of Nutcracker, now in its 32nd season. The brilliant result of close collaboration between Goldsboro Ballet founding Artistic Director and choreographer Peggy Wingate and her daughter, Assistant Director Mary Franklin premiered to local acclaim in December 2001. The Directors delved deeply into the original story, infusing the ballet with a drama and strength that fully complements Tchaikovsky's rich score, while creating a kaleidoscope of roles for all levels of the Company.
Nutcracker is our great repertory ballet. With multiple performances each season, Baby Mice can dream of one day being Party girls and Chinese dancers, Snowflakes, and Flowers and, ultimately, the role of Clara, in which Company women make their debut as ballerina. As students and Company grow up through Nutcracker, so the ballet grows with us, constantly renewing itself and offering challenges and insights about ballet, and life, to the next generation.
The Nutcracker Ballet is also part of the "Christmas at the Paramount" package offering 30% off the individual ticket price of three great annual Holiday productions at the Paramount Theatre. Click here for details on the Christmas at the Paramount ticket package.
