High Point, NC -- Who says "Scrooge" is heartless? If they did, then they haven't been to High Point.
Monday morning, toys and food items collected at a performance of the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival's "A Christmas Carol" will be delivered to the Salvation Army of High Point.
The man who made the delivery was Ebenezer Scrooge himself!
The NC Shakespeare Festival invited audience members to bring toys or canned food for free admission to section B. In addition to people who purchased tickets in advance, about 200 entered with donated toys and food. The audience contributed about 30 toys and more than 500 cans of food.
*Scrooge is NCShakes Artistic and Managing Director Pedro Silva, who has played Scrooge for several years and also directs the production for the 10th time this year.
NCShakes presents its 35th production of A Christmas Carol through Dec. 23 at the High Point Theatre.
