Sat 2 5:00pm & 7:00pm A Civil War Christmas at the Shriver House Thanksgiving weekend and Saturdays through December, you are cordially invited to take a candlelight tour of the Shriver House Museum decorated for an 1860’s Christmas, while hearing the story of the Shriver family and how the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War changed their lives forever. Christmas tours take place from November 23rd through December 16th. Private tours for groups of ten or more are welcome anytime throughout the holiday season; reservations are required. Shriver House Museum
309 Baltimore Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325
717-337-2800 Take a step back in time to discover how Christmas was celebrated in the mid-1800s. Enter the 19th century home of George, Hettie, Sadie (7), and Mollie (5) Shriver as they prepare for the upcoming Christmas holidays. See the candle-laden Christmas tree in its place of honor on the parlor table as a fire roars in the fireplace of the handsome room decorated with hand-made holiday greenery. After hanging stringing popcorn for the tree and hanging their stockings on the mantle, the girls set out milk and cookies in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus on that magical night. While soldiers faced the perils of the Civil War, Christmas offered a few moments of cheer that would help brighten the lives of those at home. Learn how families celebrated the holidays while fathers, sons, and husbands were separated from loved ones during this tragic time in American history.

Fri 8 8 p.m A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Since its first presentation in 1987, this production of A Christmas Carol has been celebrated by thousands of theatergoers and had become a favorite holiday tradition for young and old alike. A Christmas Carol returns bigger and better than ever in its NEW home at Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater, in Gettysburg, PA. Majestic Theater
25 Carlisle Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325
717-337-8200

This ninety-minute adaptation of the second most popular Yuletide story of all time, A Christmas Carol, simply and directly tells the redemption of the human soul and preserves the beautiful language, charm and humor of Charles Dickens’ classic tale. Set in Victorian England, the play opens on a busy London Street with Christmas Eve shoppers and vendors alike caught up in the holiday spirit. Their enthusiasm is quickly dampened with the arrival of miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge who considers the celebration a waste of time and money. Retiring to his dark and lonely quarters above his counting house, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, who informs him that he will be visited by three spirits: The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Christmas Yet to Come. Scrooge meets these specters and is taken on a journey where he encounters acquaintances from his past and present and glimpses what the future is to be. He learns a great deal and when it is Christmas morning, he awakens to find himself caught up in the magic of Yuletide. Over 50 actors, singers and dancers bring Dickens’ story beautifully to life with music and good humor as the giant pop-up book of a backdrop opens so that all who see A Christmas Carol will discover the true magic of the holiday season. Paris Peet stars as Ebenezer Scrooge.

Sat 9 8 p.m A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Since its first presentation in 1987, this production of A Christmas Carol has been celebrated by thousands of theatergoers and had become a favorite holiday tradition for young and old alike. A Christmas Carol returns bigger and better than ever in its NEW home at Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater, in Gettysburg, PA. Majestic Theater
25 Carlisle Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325
717-337-8200

This ninety-minute adaptation of the second most popular Yuletide story of all time, A Christmas Carol, simply and directly tells the redemption of the human soul and preserves the beautiful language, charm and humor of Charles Dickens’ classic tale. Set in Victorian England, the play opens on a busy London Street with Christmas Eve shoppers and vendors alike caught up in the holiday spirit. Their enthusiasm is quickly dampened with the arrival of miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge who considers the celebration a waste of time and money. Retiring to his dark and lonely quarters above his counting house, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, who informs him that he will be visited by three spirits: The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Christmas Yet to Come. Scrooge meets these specters and is taken on a journey where he encounters acquaintances from his past and present and glimpses what the future is to be. He learns a great deal and when it is Christmas morning, he awakens to find himself caught up in the magic of Yuletide. Over 50 actors, singers and dancers bring Dickens’ story beautifully to life with music and good humor as the giant pop-up book of a backdrop opens so that all who see A Christmas Carol will discover the true magic of the holiday season. Paris Peet stars as Ebenezer Scrooge.

Thu 14 2 p.m A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Since its first presentation in 1987, this production of A Christmas Carol has been celebrated by thousands of theatergoers and had become a favorite holiday tradition for young and old alike. A Christmas Carol returns bigger and better than ever in its NEW home at Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater, in Gettysburg, PA. Majestic Theater
25 Carlisle Street, Gettysburg, PA 17325
717-337-8200

This ninety-minute adaptation of the second most popular Yuletide story of all time, A Christmas Carol, simply and directly tells the redemption of the human soul and preserves the beautiful language, charm and humor of Charles Dickens’ classic tale. Set in Victorian England, the play opens on a busy London Street with Christmas Eve shoppers and vendors alike caught up in the holiday spirit. Their enthusiasm is quickly dampened with the arrival of miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge who considers the celebration a waste of time and money. Retiring to his dark and lonely quarters above his counting house, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, who informs him that he will be visited by three spirits: The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Christmas Yet to Come. Scrooge meets these specters and is taken on a journey where he encounters acquaintances from his past and present and glimpses what the future is to be. He learns a great deal and when it is Christmas morning, he awakens to find himself caught up in the magic of Yuletide. Over 50 actors, singers and dancers bring Dickens’ story beautifully to life with music and good humor as the giant pop-up book of a backdrop opens so that all who see A Christmas Carol will discover the true magic of the holiday season. Paris Peet stars as Ebenezer Scrooge.
