A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE MUSICAL
A Classic Beginning to Christmas
Come one and all; begin the Christmas Holiday season with a musical flare! Charlotte's Andromeda Community Theatre, under the direction of Sarah Shoemaker, will present the classic tale of Scrooge and Tiny Tim, A Christmas Carol. In conjunction with the Charlotte Performing Art Center there is to be a limited, single weekend, presentation of the story we all know, we all love, from Charles Dickens. This will truly be an event to be experienced by the entire family as well as a treasured memory to be shared.
This classic tale has been remade into a Broadway musical by Alan Menken (Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island). Follow the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge from the crotchety old miser into a new and compassionate man as he rediscovers the forgotten joys of life. With the help of Tiny Tim, and three spirits who show him results from the errors of his ways, you will be entertained, moved, and learn the true meaning of the holiday spirit. This will prove to be the finest way to begin the holiday season -
Sarah Shoemaker has brought together over 40 very talented cast members to bring this story to life. She has drawn on her years of personal experience in directing, voice and choreography to provide a unique and most exciting program. There promises to be large dance scenes woven in with splendid musical numbers. And of course there is always the omnipresent Scrooge trying to foil or understand the entire change. This will prove to be an entertaining night for all who can attend.
The single weekend date is Friday December 2nd and two showings on Saturday 3rd at Charlotte’s vast and inspiring Performing Arts Center at Charlotte High School. Tickets are expected to sell quickly so plan ahead and purchase early. You do not want to find yourself a week later wishing you could have attended.
