Imprisoned in the dark and miserly life he has chosen, Ebenezer Scrooge faces a fateful night of ghosts, memories, visions and fears. Will the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come help him find the way to a kinder heart and a brighter future? This hopeful and merry adaptation by Winston-Salem native and New York Times bestselling novelist Charlie Lovett is sure to bring holiday cheer to the whole family.
“It was such an honor, and a fascinating challenge, to adapt this beloved story for the stage,” Lovett said. “A Christmas Carol is so many things, but one thing it isn’t is a play — that meant I had a lot of work to do, but it also meant I had opportunities to tease out elements of the story, always, of course, doing my best to be true to Dickens’ original. I hope audiences will enjoy the result and take away the spirit of the season when they leave the theatre.”
“We’re excited to bring this world premiere production to the community of Winston-Salem,” Executive Director Philip Powell said. “This fantastical adaptation penned by New York Times best-selling author, Charlie Lovett, will delight audiences both young and old.”
A Christmas Carol is directed by Ben Baker. Bland Wade designed the set, with lighting design by Dominick Riches and props by Alex Drake. Tara Raczenski and Molly McNair designed the costumes. Kristen Skidmore is the stage manager.
