Retired Penn State professor Tony Lentz is well known in the State College area for his annual one-man performances of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. But after 40 years of performances, he’s finally calling it quits. As WPSU’s Kristine Allen reports, he’s finally ‘giving up the ghosts.’

(Listen to the story below.)

Lentz's final performances in State College are:

Monday, December 18th at The State Theatre SOLD OUT;  Thursday, December 21 at 5:00pm at Schlow Library; and Saturday, December 23rd at 7:00pm at Park Forest Village United Methodist Church

Kristine Allen is Program Director of WPSU-FM. She also files feature stories for WPSU on the arts, culture, science, and more. When she's not at WPSU, Kris enjoys playing folk fiddle, acting, singing and portrait-sketching. She is also a self-confessed "science geek." Kris started working in public radio in college, at age 17, and says she "just couldn't stop."
