Bonnie Kate Christmas: Performances scheduled this weekend at theater

Published 5:00 pm Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Holiday cheer will be in full abundance this week at one downtown site.
With Elizabethton scheduled to host thousands this weekend for the annual Downtown Christmas Parade, the Bonnie Kate Theater will spread some seasonal cheer of their own for a three-day series of “A Christmas Carol” to kick off the month of December.
Residents have three opportunities to take in performances:
Friday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, Dec. 3 at 2:30 p.m.
Marcia Ross, events coordinator at the Bonnie Kate, told the Elizabethton Star Tuesday that practices went over well and that the facility is expecting a good crowd for the different showings.
Local performances will bring to life the popular novel penned by Charles Dickens that highlights some of the most recognizable characters in Christmas lore, from Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley and Tiny Tim.
Tickets for the event are $10 for adults. Tickets for students and children are $5 and proceeds raised from the event will go toward continual renovation of the facility.
With 2017 nearing its end, Ross indicated the support for the work at the Bonnie Kate has been overwhelming. Discussing different events at the facility, Ross said that the feedback from events, including the 1940s dinner theater, surpassed expectations, from business supporter to patrons.
Following the three-day stretch of performances, there is the potential for at least another round of performances before the calendar year wraps up, Ross said.
The facility is looking to continue its growth heading into the new year by having these performances to raise funds for operational costs and other improvements, according to Ross. An item being pursued by the building is bringing in a business to supplement the theater and help continue building momentum for the Bonnie Kate “boom” happening downtown.
