Additional Performances Announced For Kathleen Turner's A CHRISTMAS CAROL IN CONCERT
In December, the New Haven Symphony Orchestra and Ivoryton Playhouse will partner to present a very special production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL with Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe winner Kathleen Turner in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge and Tony award winner, James Naughton, as Marley and the Ghosts.
Inspired by spoken on-air radio performances that were popular in the early 20th Century, this new imagining of Charles Dickens' classic tale will feature an original score by John Forster performed by musicians of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra. The script is by Arthur Yorinks and the performance is conceived and directed by Elliott Forrest.
The cast also includes Ivoryton Playhouse Artistic Director, Jacqueline Hubbard, as well as Erik Bloomquist, Collin L. Howard, Josh Powell, Sarah Jo Provost and Tess Santarsiero. Fred Newman of A Prairie Home Companion, will be the on stage Foley artist, lending his creative talents to add mystery and atmosphere to this well-loved holiday classic.
