Performers want to be home for Christmas, not just in dreams


WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — A Nebraska theater troupe got scrooged by a bus crash that led to the cancellation of its national tour of “A Christmas Carol.” Now performers are singing a different tune — they just want to be home for Christmas. The Nebraska Theatre Caravan canceled its University of Maine performance Thursday night and remaining tour dates after a bus crash that injured several performers. Troupe members were given a stipend to get home, but members were dealing with trying to arrange travel during the busy holiday season.
