ST. CHARLES PREPARATORY…..Drama Department is proud to announce its fall production Inspecting Carol by Daniel Sullivan. Inspecting Carol will be presented Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 15, 16, & 17 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 18 at 3:00 p.m. in the St. Charles Campus Theatre. Adult tickets are $10, student tickets are $5. Reservations may be placed by calling the St. Charles main office at 614-252-6714 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Behind the scenes at a struggling theatre’s annual slapdash production of A Christmas Carol, rehearsals are at a standstill. Tim is no longer Tiny, Scrooge wants to do the play in Spanish, and their funding is on hold pending an inspection!  Originally produced by the prestigious Seattle Repertory Theatre, this hilarious spoof makes for a night at the theatre that is anything but show business as usual.


Like the living body that it is, the Catholic Church will continue to grow and learn. But it will always be the same Catholic Church, always true to itself, and always faithful
to the teachings of the apostles. Yours is this Church.
