A Broadway Christmas Carol Boasting Sell-outs; OCT Ticket Sales up for Season

Dec 07, 2016 10:07AM ● Published by Jason Huddle

Old Courthouse Theatre, Inc. announced this week that it is celebrating its fifth and sixth sellouts of the 2016 – 2017 season. The Sunday December 11, 2016, and Sunday December 18, 2016 performances of A Broadway Christmas Carol, created by Kathy Feininger, are officially sold out. Tickets are still available for the Friday December 9 and 16, as well as the Saturday performances on December 10 and December 17, although those tickets are going quickly as well.

“OCT has experienced sellouts, but it’s been a long time since we’ve had multiple sellouts for multiple productions,” said OCT Guild Co-Presidents and longtime volunteers Liz & Mike Stonnell. “I think people want to escape and be entertained,” suggested Board Member Frances Quinn. “2016 has been a tough year for many reasons. People want to step out of their lives for a few hours and escape.”  

OCT’s ticket sales support Quinn’s theory. Ticket sales are 17% higher this season, as compared to last season. This recent success can also be attributed to its volunteer base. “OCT’s volunteers are extremely dedicated to supporting the theatre,” adds Board President Mary Kathryn Ewart. “OCT has no full time employees. Everything from (placing print ads) to mailing postcards, to even meeting a repairman is all done by volunteers. There’s no way OCT could be successful without its volunteers.” 

A Broadway Christmas Carol is a comical and "irreverent" retelling of Charles Dickens' classic tale,

with all the characters played by just four actors and parodies of many popular Broadway songs interspersed throughout the play. Tickets for A Broadway Christmas Carol may be purchased online at www.showtix4u.com, or calling the OCT Box Office at 704-788-2405. Volunteer opportunities are available by calling 704-788-2405 or email volunteers@oldcourthousetheatre.org.
