Set in mid-Victorian London atop more than 1,000 pounds of snow, Dickens’ characters are brought to life in this faithful, fanciful and frolicsome adaptation, directed by associate artistic director Courtney Sale.
“A Christmas Carol reminds us that we need the ghosts of friends, the ghosts of strangers, the warmth of a happy family, our past, our present and our future to rattle us back to the understanding that this life is a marvel,” said Sale. “My vision is to allow the youthful spirt, the magic and the miracle of those moments as they relate to our everyday lives, to shine through.”
New this season, child-actor Grayson Molin will star as Ghost of Christmas Past. His role marks the first time a child has played an adult role since the 1990’s.
“I especially love my role because I help Scrooge recognize opportunities in his life where he could have been kind and generous,” said Molin. “I help Scrooge discover that there are other ways to be happy.”
Come experience A Christmas Carol for the first time, or all over again. This holiday favorite brings us together when we need it the most by celebrating the power of kindness, family and love.
The production is 90 minutes with no intermission and is appropriate for ages 6 and up, or as emotionally ready for thematic music and ghost scenes.
