Cooksey Takes Part in Metro Theater “A Christmas Carol” Reading

December 8, 2021

After ticket holders from 41 states and six countries enjoyed Metro Theater Company’s virtual all-St. Louis reading of A Christmas Carol in 2020, the organization brought the one-of-a-kind event to life on stage at the Sheldon Concert Hall as an in-person fundraiser in December.

The Second Annual All-St. Louis Holiday Reading of “A Christmas Carol” featured a new lineup of local and national St. Louisans, both in person and remotely, reading excerpts from Charles Dickens’s timeless classic, including Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis President and CEO Vanessa Cooksey.
