In November and December, the Alvina Krause Theatre in downtown Bloomsburg will be filled with the sounds of school students in the audience when Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble presents Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some) as the holiday offering for its 39th season.

 Appropriate for all ages, there are eight matinees scheduled: November 30, December 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, and 15.  All matinees begin at 10:00 a.m. 

Attending BTE for a holiday matinee is a tradition for many schools. Matinees fill quickly; the December 15 matinee is almost sold-out.

 Three under-prepared actors make a hysterical attempt to tell all of your favorite Christmas stories in 90 minutes. Featuring (insert your favorite Christmas song/movie/book/ tradition here!)  For fans of BTE's‘ A Christmas Story and 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

BTE's school matinees include the full-length mainstage production of Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some) as well as a unique behind-the-scenes peek at the show itself.  After each matinee, students are invited to "Meet the Cast" as the actors make themselves available to answer questions about any aspect of the production.

 To make a reservation for one of these special matinees or for more information about all of the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble’s programs for students, contact Paula Henry, BTE’s School Programs Director at 570.458.4075, email at or visit
