7th Annual “Humbug to Hunger”

 

Carol Poster for webRiver Union Stage will be presenting a special holiday reading of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL at the Presbyterian Church of Milford, 70 Bridge Street, Milford, NJ as part of  “Christmas in Milford” on December 11 at 7:30 p.m. to benefit local food pantries. Admission is free with a donation of a non-perishable food item.

The 7th annual Humbug to Hunger is again sponsored by Shop Rite of Hunterdon, the Presbyterian Church of Milford and River Union Stage.  Funding has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through funds administered by the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission.

“We’re happy to be serving our community in two ways with this event,” said RUS Producing Director Laura Swanson. “While it increases donations for the food pantries, it also provides audience members holiday entertainment at an admission price of their choosing.” Swanson also points out that a holiday reading of “A Christmas Carol” will give audiences the opportunity to experience the beautiful prose narrative as well as the more familiar dialogue of Dickens’ classic work.

The performances will be presented in radio theatre style and will once again feature Todd Lewis as Ebenezer Scrooge. Lewis will be joined by Alison Gilheany, Jeffrey Lanigan, Keith Strunk and Laura Swanson reading Dickens’ other beloved characters.

Food donations will be distributed by the Presbyterian Church to food pantries in Milford and Frenchtown.  Please check to be sure all donations are not beyond their expiration date for freshness.  Checks made out to a specific food pantry will also be accepted.  For a list of needed items, visit http://milfordpresbyterian.org/mission/
