Olney Theatre Center celebrates Charles Dickens' bicentennial with A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas.

Dec. 5-30: A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas
Grab a cup of cocoa and gather 'round the fireplace as Charles Dickens tells the story of greedy Ebenezer Scrooge and his encounters with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. All this month you can head to Olney Theatre Center to hear Paul Morella perform his adaptation of A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas. The script of Morella's one-man show is taken almost entirely from Dickens' original text, and the play is presented like a story told before a roaring fire.

Dec. 6-29: Seasonal Disorder
Starting tomorrow night, you can see Washington Improv Theater perform Seasonal Disorder at Source. Each unscripted show is different from the last and explores the chaos that often accompanies the holiday season. You can come join in the laughter through December 29.

Dec. 7: Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis
This Friday you can enjoy a little culture during your lunch break! A staged reading of Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis will be performed at St. Alban's Episcopal Church starting at a quarter past noon.

Music: "Christmas Love" by B.B. King
