Grand Theatre Partner in Double-Bill Christmas Production

Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre, in partnership with the University of Utah School of Music and Sinfonia, is proud to present “Amahl and the Night Visitors” and “A Christmas Carol,” running three days only, Nov. 30 – Dec. 2.


Experience two operettas in one evening that are sure to put you in the holiday spirit. In Act I, witness “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” with music and lyrics by Gian Carlo Menotti. When Amahl, a poor, crippled shepherd boy, meets the Three Kings following the star to Bethlehem, he is inspired to offer a simple gift to the Christ Child. Through his compassion, a miracle occurs.  


In Act II, enjoy the beloved Charles Dicken’s classic, “A Christmas Carol,” with music and lyrics by Utah locals, Mike Leavitt and Anthony Buck. When Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three spirits on Christmas Eve, he has the opportunity to open his heart and discover the joy that comes from generosity. 

Under the direction of Bob Breault, with Daniel Johnson co-directing “A Christmas Carol,” the creative team includes Jeffery Price as musical director and Kyra Furman as choreographer.


Tickets are $20 and are available at www.GrandTheatreCompany.com.
