This adaptation by Patrick Barlow is a newer interpretation of the traditional ghost story. It follows its main character, Ebenezer Scrooge, through his journey to find the meaning of Christmas all the while being led by three different ghosts: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present, and The Ghost of Christmas Future. With humor, and wit, this adaptation is sure to keep true to the original story all the while bringing a fresh wave of energy to the show.
The production is directed by TJ Scannell and includes a cast of 29 local performers. They have been rehearsing for this event for two months. They range in age from 7 to 70. Sometimes heart wrenching, sometimes scary, but lots of humor will keep audiences entertained to the final curtain.
