PCT to perform "A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley"
“A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley” opens November 30th at The Paris Community Theatre. Sponsored by Paris Regional Medical Center, Salas Minor Emergency Center and Smith Carpets, the production runs November 30, December 1, 2 & 6-9 in the historic downtown Paris at the Plaza Theatre on the square.
Adapted by Israel Horowitz, the comedic drama tells the well-loved story by Charles Dickens. Set in the 1920s, this classic story is presented in a unique, humorous, and ultimately heart-warming way.
“A Christmas Carol” tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly, cranky old man with no interest in Christmas or the joy it represents. His poor attitude reaches many in the town, including that of the family of Tiny Tim, a sick young boy who isn’t expected to live past Christmas. Tiny Tim and his family, however, remain optimistic, and refuse to let Scrooge’s attitude affect their Christmas spirits.
When Scrooge goes to bed on Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of his friend and former business partner, Marley. Marley introduces Scrooge to the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future, each one showing Scrooge what Christmas should be like, and what others think of him and his crankiness. He also gets a chance to see what Christmas is like for others.
This production is directed by Dr. Jean B. Campbell. This heart-warming story is sure to make everyone laugh, cry, and think. It will delight audiences of all ages, and draw forth the best efforts of all engaged in its presentation.
