** Free Event! **
To celebrate our new musical, "A Christmas Carol: A New Musical Adventure", Read Play Love will host An Old-Fashioned Christmas, with Christmas activities for kids of all ages before each performance of the musical!
The RPL Exploratory is conveniently located in East McKinney, near major highways ... but the country setting feels worlds away. It's the ideal setting for an Old-Fashioned Christmas!
Nothing says Old-Fashioned Christmas like handmade ornaments and decorations! On Sat Dec 18 and Sun Dec 19, free Pre-Show activities start at 1:30 and include:
Of course, the headline event is the exciting performance of RPL's original Winter Musical, "A Christmas Carol: A New Musical Adventure" -- starring our talented troupe of young performers age 6-16 and featuring a dozen stunning artistic puppets by New York Artist Chris Hammer. The shows begin at 3:00pm.
Cleverly set to traditional Christmas carols, the musical is a child-friendly retelling of the classic story by Charles Dickens. Get ready to hum along!
The musical follows the bitter and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by a group of mysterious Shadows who give Scrooge a glimpse at Christmases past, present, and future -- with a warning for what will happen if he does not change his ways!
