Holiday double feature

    DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Center Theatre and Slightly Off Center Players present a special holiday play double feature with “A Seussified Christmas Carol” and “The Velveteen Rabbit” Dec. 12-20.

    “A Seussified Christmas Carol” is a whimsical take on the Dickens classic with a Dr. Seuss flair. The all- youth cast will take you through Mr. Scrooge’s past, present and future in a fun and upbeat one act musical. Narrated by Thing 1 and Thing 2, the rhyming will not skip a beat. It will entertain children and their parents too, and have you dancing in your seat.
    “The Velveteen Rabbit” will follow after an intermission. Having premiered at the New York Children’s Theatre Festival in 2012, this production has a twist all its own: puppets. Before rehearsals even started, the actors went through training with professional puppeteer and adaptor of the story Andy Frodohl to bring this play to life. Handcrafted puppets combined with live actors and a beautiful set make this combination of a play and puppet show a performance not to be missed.
    “A Seussified Christmas Carol” and “The Velveteen Rabbit” will run Dec. 12, 13, 14, 19 and 20. For more information, please email, call the Center Theatre at 564-8943 or stop by at 20 East Main Street between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
    To purchase tickets or to learn more about upcoming events at Center Theatre, please call the box office at 564-8943 or visit The Center Theatre is a non-profit performing arts center dedicated to making the arts a part of life in the Maine Highlands.
