The Charles Dickens Holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol,” is now on stage at Theatre 29. Reporter Taylor Thacker says the live production came together well, but not without some challenges…..
With every play production comes obstacles and challenges. However, for Director Rob Wanless, these challenges were overcome and made for a great play, “A Christmas Carol.” The director and his cast had to deal with the absence of actors and technical difficulties when rehearsing for the play. The play has finally come together and Wanless is very proud of his cast of both Theatre 29 veterans and some new faces too, saying, “I love this adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol.’ The characters are believable—even the ghosts.” He summed up his pride, saying, “The actors assembled for this production bring these characters to life and will make you laugh, make you shed a tear, make you hope for strangers, and by the end, these actors will make you grateful for redemption.” “A Christmas Carol” will play Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00 p.m. with Sunday matinees November 24 and December 8 at 2:30 p.m. at Theatre 29. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and military, and $8 for students with ID and children under 12. For more information call 760-361-4151.
