A new adaptation of A Christmas Carol celebrates opening night on November 25 at the Theatre at St. Clement's. Patrick Barlow, writer of the Tony winning hit The 39 Steps, has retold Charles Dickens’ classic tale, which will run through January 4, 2014.
Directed by Joe Calarco, five actors bring multiple characters to life, from Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Fezziwig. Using nothing more than some simple props, fresh physicality and the power of imagination, this timeless story of redemption shows how Ebenezer Scrooge transforms from a stingy miser to a man who generously celebrates the spirit of the season all year long.
The cast of A Christmas Carol features Peter Bradbury (Cyrano De Bergerac, Picnic) as Scrooge with Mark Light-Orr (Counselor At Law), Jessie Shelton (Peter/Wendy), Franca Vercelloni (Much Ado About Nothing), and Mark Price (Mary Poppins) playing all of the other roles.
The creative team includes set design by Brian Prather, lighting design by Chris Lee, costume design by Anne Kennedy and sound design by Victoria Deiorio.
