  For years, actors from New York City have joined theater productions in the tiny central Missouri town of Arrow Rock.

The Lyceum Theatre draws visitors to the town of 56 people throughout the summer.

But for the first time in its 54-year history, the theater is staging a winter production of "The Christmas Carol." The show ends this Sunday.

A winter production has never been held at the theater out of concern that bad weather would prevent people from driving the back roads to get to Arrow Rock, located about 40 miles west of Columbia.
