After several weeks of rehearsals, the actors are ready. Last night, we performed to a preview audience of friends and family. Tonight, we take to the stage in front of a sold-out crowd eagerly awaiting this year’s installment of a wildly popular Christmas tradition: Ebenezer Scrooge.
Presented for the 27th consecutive holiday season at Pocket Sandwich Theatre, this musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is the house’s biggest draw of the year. Judging from the preview audience reaction, this year’s production promises to be one of the best yet. As performers, we had a blast playing to the crowded room. There was laughter, there were tears, there was singing both on stage and off.
I’m privileged to be working with such a young, energetic cast of 27 actors performing 50 roles! This has been a fun rehearsal process and the show looks great. I hope you find time during your hectic holiday schedule to come, sit down, relax and enjoy the show.
Directed by Jeff Vance and with David H.M. Lambert starring in the title role for the 15th year, Ebenezer Scrooge runs for 23 performances beginning tonight through December 23. Food and beverage service available before all shows. Reservations are strongly recommended. Box Office: (214) 821-1860.
