Belfry Theatre, 10690 Greenfield Ave, Noblesville
$17 adults, $14 ages 0-12 & 65-100
This highly inventive adaptation of the classic Dickens story is paired down to its essential elements. In this version, we encounter a company of traveling players about to perform the Dickens story. As the on-stage trunk of supplies opens, actors and clowns spill out and roll on. The rag tag players quickly become the characters of the story, and we are pulled into the life of Ebenezer Scrooge, complete with the Christmas Spirits who warm the Scrooge’s heart. This version of A Christmas Carol is certain to be a delight for all ages. Audiences will leave the theater with good feelings and the holiday spirit. Directed by Nancy Lafferty, Doris Baizley adaptation
The Belfry will also be hosting a silent auction Christmas fundraiser during this holiday play.

For the months of Oct-Dec, Nickel Plate Arts is excited to bring Frederick J. Green into this art space. Fred brings an impressionistic, contemporary approach to his painting. He’s known for using bold colors and brush strokes, and creating pieces using multiple canvases. Three years ago, Fred built himself an art studio, and from that point forward, his creativity and exploration of new styles, mediums, and ideas has flourished. He seeks to capture the essence of places, people, and experiences through his work, and hopes to convey a sense of ‘being there’ through his creative lens. Green brings a collection of his most celebrated works to the Meyer-Najem gallery this fall. Don’t miss Frederick J. Green’s showcase – this October to December 2019 at the Meyer-Najem Gallery in Fishers!
