The Steele Canyon Players & Instrumental Music Department PRESENT: A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas

The Steele Canyon High School Drama Department and Instrumental Music Department present the age-old beloved classic, A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas.

Show dates are Wednesday through Saturday, December 12, 13, 14 & 15 at 7 PM with a matinee performance on Sunday, December 16 at 2 PM.

All performances are in the Steele Canyon High School Theatre, 12440 Campo Road, Spring Valley. Tickets for all performances are $10 each and may be purchased online at www.schscougars.org, or purchased at the box office on the evening of performances.
