Northern Michigan Holidays: Visit Elk Rapids on Thursday, December 13 for Parallel 45's second 2012 production, A Christmas Carol in Prose. Tickets are available for $15, all ages. A Christmas Carol in Prose boasts a script adapted from the Dickens classic by Magic Mouth co-founder Ben Whiting. Utilizing only three actors, a trunk, and a few props, Carol combines traditional storytelling with Magic Mouth's signature illusion element to uncover the stunning original text of this wildly popular holiday story, the beauty of which has been all but lost in the past 150 years of adaptations. Bring the whole family!
