Carine Montbertrand & Laura Frye Set To Take On Scrooge And Marley In Titan Theatre Company's A CHRISTMAS CAROL
The award-winning Titan Theatre Company has announced the cast and creative team for its upcoming production of the Charles Dickens classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL, adapted by Emily Trask and Lenny Banovez.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL , celebrating its 5th Anniversary (while the company celebrates its 10th) will play a three-week limited engagement at Queens Theatre. Performances begin Friday, December 7th and continue through Sunday, December 23rd.
Titan's award-winning and critically acclaimed musical adaptation brings the timeless story of Ebenezer Scrooge alive onstage. This fresh and fast paced production transports audiences to Victorian England where they journey with the iconic Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by three transformational spirits from his past, present, and future who change his life forever. A classic story of redemption and forgiveness, A CHRISTMAS CAROL is the perfect theatre experience for everyone this holiday season.
This season Carine Montbertrand tackles the iconic role of Ebenezer Scrooge. She joins Titan Company Member Laura Frye in becoming one of the first female duos to take on these traditionally male roles in the same production. Makeup Artist Lee E. Ernst and Wig Master Lara Dalbey will be in charge of making these transformations into Scrooge and his former business partner whose ghostly visit begins the tale's journey to redemption.
"I'm thrilled to see Carine joining us this year!" said Frye, "This will be my fifth Christmas Carol with Titan, and to have a chance to play Marley again across from one of best actresses I know is very exciting. Lee and Lara are a true dream team, and I cannot wait to see what we come up with!"
Frye is joined by an A List cast featuring Titan Company Members Marcus Denard Johnson as Bob Cratchit, Alyssa Van Gorder as Mrs. Cratchit, Bailey Seeker as the Ghost of Christmas Past and Michael Selkirk as Mr. Fezziwg.
