The Newport Cultural Center will host a variety of arts events throughout the holiday season. The Center is currently exhibiting “Art for All Seasons,” curated by The Valley Arts Alliance. A children’s Christmas craft workshop is planned for each Saturday morning, and spots may be reserved by calling (207) 368-5074. The Ten Bucks Theatre will perform a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, December 14. Admission will be by donation, with proceeds benefiting the theatre group. A $5 donation is suggested. Families will enjoy catching the spirit of Christmas (past, present and future) with Ebenezer Scrooge and talented Ten Bucks regulars as they bring this magical holiday story to life, right off the page!
