University of West Florida | email@example.com
The University of West Florida Department of Theatre will present its 11th annual production of “A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas,” a new take on the beloved Charles Dickens classic adapted by Michael Wilson. Performances will be held on Dec. 1, 2, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 3 and 10 at 2:30 p.m. All performances will take place in the Mainstage Theatre of the Center for Fine and Performing Arts, Building 82.
This spirited retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic pushes the fantastical elements of the beloved holiday story into the spotlight. A chorus of ghosts dance and carol their way in and out of this timeless tale of redemption, magic, and hope as Ebenezer Scrooge learns to embrace true holiday spirit. For the first time in this 11-year tradition the classic role of Ebenezer Scrooge will be played by a senior student from the Department of Theatre.
Director Lars Tatom leads the creative team, which includes Department of Theatre Chairperson Charles Houghton as Lighting and Set Designer and Glenn Avery Breed as Costume Designer.
