LAWRENCEVILLE — For the fourth straight year Anthony Rodriguez will put on his solo performance of the holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.” Using his voice and mannerisms, Rodriguez brings life to Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley and the remarkable ghosts found in the great Christmas story.

The one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” returns for a limited three-week engagement at the Aurora Theatre starting tonight and running through Dec. 19.
