A Dickens Of A Christmas is based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. This classic tale of covetous miser Ebenezer Scrooge, brought to life with a powerful score and a Dickensian-style script that is sure to impress. When visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, Scrooge is forced to see the coldness of his humbug ways, and learns to honor Christmas in his own heart. This is a moving holiday performance the entire family is sure to enjoy.
Sunshine Express is composed of over 40 dedicated students from Kalaheo Elementary school in grades 3 through 5. The group is under the direction of Mr. Laine Griffith. Mr. Griffith is the Kalaheo Elementary school’s music and band teacher and has been serving and educating our keiki for 21 years!
