Circle Theatre, a professional theatre located in Sundance Square, presents the world premiere of A Lone Star Christmas Carol by Gary Moody & Gary Taylor. Preview performances for the show are Thursday, November 19; Friday, November 20; and Saturday, November 21 (matinee). The production will officially open Saturday evening, November 21 at 8:00pm, followed by a post-show party with the cast & crew.

North Texas natives Gary Moody & Gary Taylor worked together on various projects in the 80's. But it wasn't until twenty years later, in 2000, that they decided to collaborate on A Lone Star Christmas Carol. Author, Gary Moody, states, "We thought audiences might appreciate a modern and colloquial "translation" of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It seemed to us that folks would enjoy seeing Dickens' story spoken and sung in the vernacular of the American Southwest, rather than chronicling a traditional English Christmas in the 1840's."

Under the direction of Chris Robinson, A Lone Star Christmas Carol features Jeff McGee**, Gary Moody*, Burl Proctor**, Rachel Rice**, John Venable**, & Heatherton Hardy Wilson*. Music director & guitarist, Gary Taylor, will be accompanied by Charles Crawford (guitar) and Rick Norman (bass). Sara Harris* will serve as stage manager for the production.

Producer, Rose Pearson, says, "Circle Theatre is proud to partner with the "two Garys" in creating a wonderful seasonal offering that will fit beautifully in smaller regional theatres. This musical re-telling of Dickens' classic tale is a must-see for the holiday season. It has toe-tappin' original music and a cast of actors who were all born and bred in the Lone Star State. How is that for a show being "totally Texan"?"

Circle Theatre is partially supported by the Arts Council of Fort Worth and Tarrant County; The City of Fort Worth; The Texas Commission on the Arts; and The National Endowment for the Arts. Corporate sponsorship for the current season is provided by Four Day Weekend Comedy and McDonald Sanders Law Firm.When: November 19 - December 19
