I had the pleasure of attending a great performance of Fifth Third Bank’s A Christmas Carol at Actors Theatre of Louisville last week!  The theater has come alive with a bright, wintery themed lobby and Dickens’ era characters all around.  This show is a huge Christmas tradition for me.  I remember growing up how I looked forward to it every year.  It is a beloved story of charity, kindness and redemption to life.  Over the years the scenery, costumes and actors have changed, but the professionalism of the show has always been unwavering.  This tale of Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey to finding...
