Ebenezer Scrooge at Pelican Elementary

Funded by the Pelican Booster Club, Portland's Traveling Lanterns Theater Company presented the story of Ebenezer Scrooge at Pelican Elementary 12/6. The actors used audience interaction and physical comedy to entertain while also conveying the serious message of Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol." As 2nd-grader Jayla said, "It was about being nice to people!"
