Le Petit Theatre Extends A CHRISTMAS CAROL!
Le Petit Theatre is kicking-off the holiday season with their first-annual production of Charles Dickens' beloved tale, A Christmas Carol. In addition to spreading holiday cheer, the company intends to make this production a perennial favorite for generations of New Orleanians. Most everyone knows the classic tale of miserly and menacing moneylender Ebenezer Scrooge, but not everyone has experienced watching him learn lessons in love, generosity, and redemption live and in person as he is visited by a host of spirits on Christmas Eve. This production is filled with magic, ghosts, glorious costumes, a stunning set design, and holiday cheer.
Performance dates of A Christmas Carol are December 7 - 28, 2018 at Le Petit Theatre, 616 St. Peter St. New Orleans, LA 70116. Subscriptions and single tickets are available weekdays from 12 - 5 pm at the Box Office (504) 522-2081 or online anytime at www.lepetittheatre.com.
The cast includes Bob Edes, Jr. as Ebenezer Scrooge; John Neisler as Jacob Marley/ Christmas Future; Zeb Hollins III as Christmas Present; Julia Delois as Christmas Past; Sean Patterson and Cammie West as Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig; Mary Pauley as Mrs. Dilber; and Curtis Billings and Kate Kuen as Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Cratchit. Also featured: Michael A. Newcomer, Sean Riley, Trey Ming, Danielle Bessler, Darren Hayes, Elizabeth McCoy, Trey Ming, and Joe Nierle.
