GREAT LAKES THEATER IS GRANTING ONE YOUNG ACTOR’S SPECIAL WISH DURING THIS SEASON’S A CHRISTMAS CAROL

(Cleveland, OH) - Great Lakes Theater (GLT) is creating even more magic this holiday season by granting the wish of one remarkable young actor during A Christmas Carol. A Special Wish Cleveland contacted Great Lakes Theater earlier this year to help make one wish recipient’s desire of being an actor come true. Excited to make this dream a reality, everyone at GLT jumped in to make it possible to have Amelia, the special wish recipient, as part of the cast in our upcoming production of A Christmas Carol.

Amelia will make her GLT debut in A Christmas Carol during our December 14th matinee performance. Preparing for her on stage performance, Amelia has enjoyed fittings of her own personalized costume and rehearsal with the full cast. Cast and crew cannot wait to have Amelia on stage with them.

Join us on December 14th at 1:30 PM to see Amelia’s debut.

GLT presents its beloved production of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol, running November 29 – December 22, 2019 at the Mimi Ohio Theatre, Playhouse Square. The production has delighted more than 750,000 people in its history, making it one of Northeast Ohio’s most-loved and best-attended holiday events.

Curtain times for all evening performances will remain at 7:30 p.m., with a 1:30 p.m. curtain time for Saturday matinées and a 3:00 p.m. curtain time for Sunday matinées. An audio-described and sign interpreted performance is scheduled for Sunday, December 1st at 3:00 p.m.
