Laura Frye Plays 'Jacob Marley' in Titan Theatre Company's A CHRISTMAS CAROL, Starting Tonight
A CHRISTMAS CAROL will play a three-week limited engagement at Queens Theatre. Performances begin tonight, December 8th, and continue through Friday, December 22.
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.
For the first time in this production, the cast will feature a female Jacob Marley. Resident Acting Company Member Laura Frye will put on the chains of despair this year, and with the help of Makeup Artist Lee E. Ernst and Wig Master Lara Dalbey, will be making the transformation nightly into Scrooge's former business partner who's ghostly visit begins the tale's journey to redemption.
"It will be a challenge, but one I an extremely excited about." said Frye, "This will be my fourth Christmas Carol with Titan, and to have a chance to play Marley, and work with Lee and Lara is a dream. Make up roles are always fun. Our goal will be to make the transformation seamless, and I cannot wait to see what we come up with!"
