Whether the sun is shining or it’s a raining outside, visiting general stores is the perfect way to spend a fall day.
What is more evocative of all that is heartwarming about Christmas than Dickens’ A Christmas Carol? Back by popular demand, CFUW- Owen Sound, in co-production with the historic Roxy Theatre, presents A Dramatization of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol - for one show only - Thursday, December 6th at 7:30 p.m.
Director of many memorable Owen Sound Little Theatre productions, Pat O’Connor has adapted and directs this beloved tale as a “dramatization”. More than a “reading”, it requires costumes, props, lighting, sound effects, music, singing and actors to speak their lines, not just read. The cast and crew of more than 30 (mainly Owen Sound Little Theatre members) actors, musicians and crew feature Matt Evans as Ebenezer Scrooge, Rick Ringer as the Narrator and 10-year-old Gwynfor Cox as Tiny Tim.
This co-production is a fund-raiser for CFUW’s community outreach projects, including its scholarship fund, dedicated to assisting local young women in their educational pursuits, and The Roxy.
A Dramatization of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol promises to be a highlight of the pre-Christmas season!
