A Christmas Carol

On Friday, December 13th Community Crisis Services will be co-hosting a fundraiser for our Warm Nights Homeless and Safe Passages Domestic Violence Shelters with the opening of A Christmas Carol. 

Adaptation by William Leary
Original Songs and Compositions Jennifer Quilty
Starring Tim Jansen as Ebenezer Scrooge

Set in modern times, this version of the Charles Dickens classic tale from Wolf Pack Theatre Company, playwright William Leary and Composer Jennifer Quilty presents a unique and moving musical theater experience! 
The poverty and indifference to human suffering that typified London in the mid-19th century is skillfully paralleled in this present-day drama.

The story begins on Christmas Eve with a group of homeless individuals and families warming their hands over a fire in a trash bin outside of a church shelter. They discuss the concerns of the day including unemployment and the greed of the business community including Scrooge Enterprises, the towns most miserly and miserable employer. We are introduced to the Cratchitt family as they make their first appearance in a homeless shelter.
 
As the characters are introduced, we find the interpersonal connections and family ties that make this retelling of the family favorite fresh and unlike any other of the thousands of productions through the years.
Expertly weaving traditional Christmas Carols and soon-to-be classic songs into the story, Leary and Quilty bring you a cleverly staged and thrillingly reimagined production that is sure to help 'Keep the Spirit of Christmas alive all the year through!'   

The evening includes light refreshments including beverages and photo opportunities with Santa in our Christmas Village!

Only $10.00 per person, all proceeds from December 13th will benefit Community Crisis Services!
