This year marks the 24th time that The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future have taken up residence at Hedgerow Theatre in December.

For hundreds of families throughout the region,

Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is a must-do holiday tradition.

Dickens’ tale of the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserable, selfish miser whose heart is transformed after he is visited by a series of spirits on Christmas Eve is faithfully adapted by the theatre's Artistic Director, Jared Reed.

"We love bringing together our entire Hedgerow Community – professional actors, families, the whole Delaware Valley – and sharing in this uplifting tale year after year. Dickens’ is an amazing storyteller, and he gets what we as people feel and experience, as well as understands that sometimes we fall down before we rise to where we need to be."

Reed also noted that each year they look at what themes resonate and find a way to present it.

"This year, we are having a core company of professionals supported by a ‘roving choir’ along  with over 50 young actors from the community under the age of 18 to play the Cratchitts and all the young people in Dickens’ story," Reed explains.

The Media Theatre is also deeply rooted in holiday tradition performing both family productions and children's plays like Winnie-The-Pooh Christmas Tail.

For families, A Christmas Story is the holiday classic about the boy who wants nothing more than a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas and his dad who wins that incredible leg lamp, pictured above! This family show is a humorous and upbeat story about who you have around you–not what you have surrounding you.

In  Winnie-The- Pooh Christmas Tail a very special Friend-and-Relation tells Christopher Robin a story of a Christmas Eve very long ago (about last year) when Eeyore, the old gray donkey who lives by himself in the thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood, was absolutely miserable. It seems that he lost his tail and Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet got all of their friends and a search was organized. There is a great deal of fun and excitement, plus delightful songs, in the adventure that follows.
