Now Playing: A Christmas Carol

Our Tiny Tim is played by Corley Pillsbury, last seen as the zombie sister in the basement in Evil Dead the Musical.

So I neglected to mention that I am in another play.  And not only am I in another play, but I get to don three different wigs, three different British accents and one fat suit, in order to play three different characters in Scottish Rite Children’s Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol. The show is directed by Michael McKelvey and stars Nathan Jerkins as Scrooge, and also features my old Frog Prince besties, Sean Martin and Jose Villarreal. We opened this weekend to audiences that strangely had more adults than children.  I’m sure the house will fill out though.  During Frog Prince we regularly had almost 200 kids in the theater.  That requires a lot of bottom glue.

With a few twists on Charles Dickens’ classic tale, Scottish Rite Children’s Theatre presents A Christmas Carol. Written by D. Heath Thompson for young audiences with original music and songs by Michael McKelvey, the interactive play teaches the values of kindness and sharing.On Christmas Eve, Scrooge sits alone counting his cash and is visited by friendlier, funnier versions of the ghosts of Christmas Present, Past and Future. The ghosts show Scrooge the errors of his crotchety ways and help him make an overnight transformation from grouchy to grateful! A perfect holiday treat for children ages 2 – adult.
