GUTHRIE, OK, December 1, 2010 – Join the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce in packing The Pollard Theatre tonight as part of Guthrie’s annual Territorial Christmas Celebration.

 

“There is no other event in Oklahoma like Guthrie’s Territorial Christmas celebration,” Guthrie Chamber of Commerce President Mary Coffin said.  “The town transforms from the 21st Century to the 19th Century. This year we are excited to host ‘Pack the Pollard’ that is sure to take visitors back in time to the Victorian era.”

 

On Wednesday, December 1, visitors to downtown historic Guthrie are invited to see The Pollard Theatre’s production of A Territorial Christmas Carol for only $15. This special night will include a reception after the show with the opportunity to meet the cast. Seating is limited and visitors are encouraged to purchase their tickets quickly.

 

An all-time best seller, A Territorial Christmas Carol continues to dazzle audiences and play to sold-out houses into its twenty-third year. Adapted by gifted Oklahoma playwright, Stephen P. Scott, this version of Charles Dickens' classic tale of redemption and brotherly love is set in Guthrie in the days of the Oklahoma Land Run.

Other Territorial Christmas Celebration activities include the Historic Homes Tour on December 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Historic Homes Tour will feature multiple Victorian homes that are over 100 years old! Each home will be decorated for the holidays. Tickets for the homes tour are $20.00 per person.

To purchase tickets to the December 1 production of A Territorial Christmas Carol and/or the Historic Homes Tour, please contact the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce at (405) 282-1947; (800) 299-1889 or visit www.guthrieok.com.
