Wood High choral group to stage Madrigal Dinner – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

In Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol,” the character Ebenezer Scrooge, a name universally synonymous with being a cold-hearted miser, fails to adopt an attitude of gratitude until he comes face to face with his bankrupt moral inventory.

Right up until Christmas Eve, as written in the short 1843 novel, Scrooge, ever the stingy creditor, continues his bad-tempered ways, rejecting a Christmas dinner invitation from a nephew and all the warm trappings of the holidays. He yells at charity workers and abuses his earnest employee, Bob Cratchit, before he is redeemed by a self-understanding and a power greater than himself.

The well-known story contains a message about the meaning of Christmas, which may explain why the Will C. Wood High School Singers will stage it Dec. 1 to 3 in the Vacaville Opera House, 560 Main St.
