Friday, Dec. 15, 7 p.m.—LUDLOW—Friends of the Ludlow Auditorium (FOLA) will bring the sights and sounds of the holiday season to the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium with its annual Community Christmas Celebration on Friday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m.
George Thomson will once again emcee this night of holiday performances by the members of the community. Claudia Pawlikowski will lead students from the Ludlow Elementary School and the Mount Holly Elementary School in Christmas songs and dance. Katherine Herrle and the Black River High School/Middle School will also perform a variety of holiday music.
In addition to the student performances, the three ghosts from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” will contemplate their roles before haunting Scrooge in a short comedic skit; and talented members of the community will sing a few traditional songs, poignant readings of holiday poems, and a special performance of “The Christmas Truce,” which examines the aftermath of the famous World War I Christmas cessation of hostilities by the soldiers in the trenches. The evening will close with a rousing sing-along of traditional Christmas songs.
Come and enjoy this celebration that will feature friends and neighbors, including: Kay Burge, Bruce Farr, Will Hunter, Lisha Klaiber, Bob Kottkamp, Andy Ohotnicky, Sandra Russo, Scott Stearns, Linda Thomson, Rolf van Schaik, and Larry Wilfong.
