Spartans Shine in 'A Christmas Carol' at Triad Stage
December 5, 2016

Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale “A Christmas Carol” has returned to Triad Stage with a cast and creative staff that includes many of UNCG’s own. This year’s production is led by Director Sarah Hankins MFA ’16, now an adjunct faculty member at UNCG, and Musical Director Justin Cowan ’14, ’16 MM, who is pursuing a doctoral degree in conducting. For Hankins, who served as assistant director to Director Bryan Conger ’11 MFA in last year’s show, having Cowan and seven other Spartans involved in the production has made her first Triad Stage directing job all the more special.

It has never been out of print since 1843.
