Evansville Art Center to host Dickens by Candlelight, other festivities in December

We are part of The Trust Project.

The Evansville Art Center will host a sing-a-long and Dickens by Candlelight, among other activities during December.

On Thursday, Dec. 1, the Photo Club will meet at 6 p.m. — earlier than normal — for a Christmas potluck. Please bring a dish to share as well as 5-6 photos on a jump drive to share.

The sing-a-long will be part of the First Friday Christmas Show, at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2. ParaDocx will perform during a performance modeled loosely after the old radio shows. There will be a lineup of surprise guests, holiday favorites and stories. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. There is no charge for admission; however, donations will be gratefully accepted. Attendees may bring a favorite holiday treat to share at intermission.

At 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, the center will move several blocks to the larger space at Railroad & 2nd Event Center in Evansville to host Dickens by Candlelight, with tea, coffee, and home-made cookies. This three-person, interactive show will depict "A Christmas Carol" the way it was intended to be told: as a Ghost Story. It is recommended for viewers age 7 and up.

Tickets cost $15 and seating is limited. Tickets may be purchased at or during gallery hours, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Nov. 25-26 and Friday-Saturday, Dec. 2-3.


The last Open Mic of the year is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15. Holiday music is fun, but not required. Come to play, sing, or listen. There is an excellent sound system and a full keyboard Yamaha. There is no charge for this event; however, free-will donations are appreciated. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Attendees may bring Christmas goodies to share at intermission.
