Shakespeare Festival to perform ‘A Christmas Carol’ in Shelton

Valley Shakespeare Festival will present another Shakespeare in the Bar performance this coming March, but before then it will be reprising its holiday offering, a scripted dramatic reading of the Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol.

The event is being held in association with the Shelton Historical Society and will be presented at Shelton’s Plumb Memorial Library on Thursday, Dec. 4 at  7 p.m. and again on Saturday, Dec. 6 at 1 p.m.

The Shelton Historical Society will host a reception at the Shelton History Center at 70 Ripton Road following the Saturday performance, at which audience members may tour the society’s classic buildings and museum and meet and mingle with cast members.

The event is free with a suggested donation of $10. For more information contact Valley Shakespeare Festival at 203-513-9446 or visit and follow on Facebook.
