Shepherd Shakespeare to stage Christmas plays at Randolph libraries

ASHEBORO -- Three Randolph County libraries will host Christmas performances by the Shepherd Shakespeare Company in December.

At the Seagrove Public Library, the Charlotte-based  troupe will present Louisa May Alcott’s A Christmas Dream at noon Thursday, December 7. A Christmas Dream is a Christmas Carol-like tale of a young boy who learns that the greatest gifts are not the ones you receive, but the ones you give.

The Seagrove library is located at 530 Old Plank Road. 

At the Asheboro and Randleman libraries, the company will present ’Twas the Night Before Christmas. Performances will take place at the Asheboro library, 201 Worth Street, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, December 19; and at the Randleman library, 142 W. Academy St., at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 19.

This envisioning of the famous verse has author Clement Moore facing a case of writer’s block as he tries to pen a poem about the wonders of Christmas Eve.

Frustratingly funny trials and errors lead him to acting out his ideas with the help of puppets, found objects and friends from the audience. Watch as the magic of this cherished classic unfolds.

The shows are free and the public is invited. For further information, call 336-318-6804.
