The Philip Lynch Theatre production will be a radio play adaptation of Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol.” The Holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials and the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. A handful of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage, as the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the meaning of Christmas. A charming take on a family favorite that will leave no one saying, “Bah Humbug!”
The Christmas Carol cast features the following Lewis University students: Katelyn L. Butt, Andrew Dills, Brianna Hall, Justin (Juice) McCathy, Gwen Pasowicz, Chloe Sheppard, Brendan Roark, Lukas Roy, Mac Maher and Alex Schedel with Courtney Mason as the understudy/swing.
Serving as the director of this charming classic, Annie Calhoun helps us all remember the magic of the holidays. Set Designer Andrew Nelsen immerses the audience into the world of Ebenezer Scrooge. Costumer Celeste Mackey visually transports the actors back to 19th-century England. Jeremy Landig will once again join in as Musical Director. Working behind the scenes are Nick Brand (stage manager), Courtney Mason (assistant stage manager) and Dave Pomatto (assistant technical director).
