A Christmas Carol
through December 24, 2023
They’re Back! What would the holidaze be without that grumpy Scrooge (Andrew Benator) and that poor bookkeeper with the tiny son. You’ve seen the story on screen and stage and it’s usually pretty much the same; like the mean old boss, and the three ghosts who come to visit. This one has been adapted somewhat so that you feel the breadth of the population in London in those days and what was going on when the Luddite’s started to rise up.
Can a meanie change? You betcha….. but this one may be more for the older folks than for the very young kiddies, as they may get a little lost in what transpires in the play adapted from Charles Dickens by David H. Bell and with a large cast directed by Caitlin Hargraves. Some of the set has been used before and one of the ghosts returns as previously seen. But, the basic story remains as first written. It is never too late to make more proper choices as you travel life’s path.
Performed on a superb set and every seat with good views, it’s on the Coca-Cola Stage. On site parking available and easy to get to by car or Marta. Show runs about 2 hours 20 minutes with one intermission. More info and tickets at AllianceTheatre.org
