AN APPALACHIAN CHRISTMAS CAROL, 2017

JANUARY 19TH & 20TH

VANCE BIRTHPLACE, WEAVERVILLE

This past Christmas season at the Vance Birthplace, we presented one of the greatest Christmas stories ever told, but with our own Zebulon Vance right smack dab in the middle.  Through the theatrical magic of toy theatre, we transported the audience directly into the Christmas Carol, as they went on an extraordinary and illuminating journey through the entire site of the Birthplace.  In rotating half hours from 5-9pm on each evening, audiences were taken through the experience.  It was an evening of story and tradition, but with a Carolina twist.
