A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens
Adapted by Caleb Thurston
About the Play
This new adaptation brings Charles Dickens’s classic ghost story to life with an approach appealing to child-like imaginations. Ebenezer Scrooge must be forced outside his own world to see the truth of Christmases past, present and future.
Running 60 minutes without an intermission, VRT’s second full production, A Christmas Carol, is a fast-paced, colorful production that will keep the whole family entertained!
Here are some excerpts from this week’s front page feature by Amanda Newman of the Newberg Graphic:
“If seeing the world through the eyes of others and being changed by what you see is the main objective for VRT, putting on a show that the whole community can come together to watch is a close second.” – Amanda Newman (The Graphic)
“It’s about how somebody gets their personality changed.” – Ethan Reed McKay (Tiny Tim)
“There (are) characters that everybody can relate to, and I think it’s one of those stories that everybody needs to hear…It has a deeper message, but it’s also a lot of fun” – Jordan Beanblossom (Scrooge)
“It’s designed for the family…if you’re looking for a dark gloomy ghost story, you’re probably not coming to the right Christmas Carol” – Caleb Thurston (Director)
