Looking for something different this holiday season? Here's an opportunity to bring your whole family to enjoy an entertaining and highly energetic staged reading of this holiday classic. Doris Baizley's inventive stage adaption of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" is told by a ragtag troupe of traveling players made up of actors, puppets, clowns and mimes. The magical world of make-believe comes to life as the troupe's trunk of supplies mystically opens and reveals the transformative life of Ebenezer Scrooge, from parsimonious miser to generous benefactor, thanks to the intervention of three wise ghosts.
"We wanted to do something a little different for a Christmas show," says Mary McKinley, Greenwood Lake Theater's Co-Artistic director. "So we chose this interesting take on the traditional presentation of 'A Christmas Carol.' It's really a clever reimagining of the story. Each actor plays several roles, and all of their props and costume pieces miraculously appear from a trunk on the stage. It is also our privilege to partner with Warwick Historical Society this year, and to perform this work in the same beautiful church where the movie, "In and Out' was filmed."
"We really enjoyed working on this show, too'," says Katherine Weatherford, Co-Artistic director of Greenwood Lake Theater. "It's a little crazy with each of the actors switching back and forth between roles, making this show a bit of a challenge but a whole lot of fun to do. It's not your typical 'Christmas Carol.' Anyone who comes will have a great time."
