This from the Gloucester Times:
After replacing their annual classic "A Christmas Carol" with Disney cultural phenomenon "High School Musical 2" for the holiday season, (North Shore Music Theater)officials have been forced to slash ticket prices because of slow sales.
The theater announced last week that ticket prices for children under 18 have been cut from $71 and $58.50 to $25 for all seats, while the top prices for adults have been reduced from $79 to $60. All tickets for the Friday, Dec. 19 performance are $25.
Theater spokeswoman Carol LaRosa attributed the slow sales to the poor economy and not to the decision to replace "A Christmas Carol," which is the most popular show in the theater's history and was to stage its 20th anniversary performance this year.
The difference between Dickens and Disney.
Well, anybody on the North Shore who is feeling a jonz for the old classic can still get tickets to the fun romp on the Trolley this year.
