A CHRISTMAS CAROL to Open at The Secret Theatre This Holiday Season

Though not a musical the production features several classic Christmas Carols with live music accompaniment.

The Secret Theatre's production of A Christmas Carol features a brand-new adaptation by their Artistic Director, Richard Mazda, who will also perform Scrooge.

Though not a musical the production features several classic Christmas Carols with live music accompaniment.

One cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge is unkind to the people who work for him, then refuses to give to charity, and then is rude to his nephew when he invites him to spend Christmas with him. When Scrooge gets home, he is visited by the ghost of his old business partner Jacob Marley - and then by three ghosts! They are the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future.

The Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge on a journey through Christmases from his past, taking Scrooge to see himself as an unhappy child and a young man more in love with money than his fiancée. The Ghost of Christmas Present shows Scrooge his clerk, Bob Cratchit's family. At Bob Cratchit's house Scrooge sees Tiny Tim, who is very ill, but full of spirit. The ghost then takes him to see his nephew Fred's Christmas celebrations - Finally, The Ghost of Yet To Come terrifies Scrooge by showing him visions of his own death.

The ghosts' journey through time teaches Scrooge the error of his ways. When he wakes up on Christmas Day, he is full of excitement, and buys the biggest turkey in the shop for the Cratchit family before spending the day with his nephew, full of the joys of Christmas.

The production is produced as an Equity Showcase by kind permission of Actors Equity Association.

The Secret Theatre provides full access to the differently abled.

Theater For the New City Presents MIDAS This Month Photo
 In mythology, Midas is a character who turns everything he touches into gold. It's at once his blessing and his curse, a talent and, when the wrong things turn to gold, a source of tragedy.

Stephen R. Rourke Presents Melissa Borgerdings SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU Photo
Someone Close To You concerns Helen – a fiercely independent spirit – reaching the end of her life; and her son, Ben – who sees risk everywhere.  Ben must confront his aging mother about bringing her home, essentially, to die. Ironically, it is he who learns more about life than he bargained for.

Walking around New York City can be a kind of time travel, as we see old buildings still standing and sometimes what appears when other old buildings are demolished. But if you could step into a time machine and travel back in time for real, to a particular place and meet particular people, where, when and who would that be?
