Tickets on sale for Holiday Show
Tickets are now on sale for our holiday show – “Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge.” Written by Christopher Durang and directed by Scott Claunch.
In this departure from Dickens, young Scrooge’s exclamations of “bah, humbug!” are an undiagnosed “kind of seasonal Tourette’s Syndrome” and The Ghost of Christmas Past is played by a sassy woman with enough attitude to portray all three spirits (which she does). She tries to show Scrooge his past, present, and future in order to change him, but her magic keeps malfunctioning in Durang’s version of the beloved holiday classic, and they constantly find themselves transported to the wrong time and place. She tries to take Scrooge back to see his old employers, the Fezziwig’s – but instead she and Scrooge keep appearing in the present at the Cratchit’s pathetic home. Mrs. Bob Cratchit, a minor character in the Dickens, takes center stage here.
