Last holiday season, a Colorado Shakespeare Festival staff member wore a button emblazoned with Tiny Tim's innocent, generous, inclusive statement: "God bless us, every one!," his only line in "A Christmas Carol." An airport security Grinch confiscated that button. But with a smile and approval from the staff member, the guard fastened it to his uniform. Â Suffice it to say, it continued to cheer many a harried traveler.
"A Christmas Carol" is a holiday stage tradition reminding adults and children alike that generosity of the spirit contributing to the greater good is still a possibility.
The CSF previews the play on Thursday, Dec. 2, with opening night on Friday, Dec. 3, in University Theater on the CU-Boulder campus. The show runs through a matinee performance on Dec. 24. Early 7 p.m. curtains and numerous matinees make it a great family outing or aprÃ¨s-shopping entertainment.

The offer for the 7 p.m. Dec. 3 performance is valid for dress circle and orchestra tickets, is not valid on previous purchases, may not be combined with other discounts or offers, and is subject to availability.
