Holiday Theater 2015 – Ring in the season with the family classic ‘A Christmas Carol’
Christmas Carol comes to the Woodlands!! Class Act Productions will bring to life a musical version of Charles Dickens’ timeless holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.” The production opens Nov. 28 at The Nancy Bock Center for Performing Arts in The Woodlands.
Founder and Artistic Director of Class Act Productions, Keith Brumfield directs the performance assisted by Debra Moses, choral director/music teacher at The John Cooper School. Brumfield chose this version of the classic tale because of its musical score, composed by Alan Menken with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. Audiences will remember Menken as the multi-award winning composer of Disney’s “Beauty and The Beast,” “The Little Mermaid,” and “Newsies.”
“The music is superb,” Brumfield said. “It’s a really nice adaptation of the classic story of A Christmas Carol. We are hoping audiences will truly enjoy the performance and interpretation and maybe make it a new holiday tradition.”
Tackling the iconic role of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is Woodlands HS senior Aidan Stock. The story follows along as Ebenezer is visited by three spirts: Belynda Smith, Ghost of Christmas Past, Brian Weaver, Ghost of Christmas Present, and Anita Stevens, Ghost of Christmas Future. They help Scrooge recognize his faults and greet Christmas morning with a cheerful “Merry Christmas!” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.
Families have joined together both onstage and off to help to tell this heart-warming story. The cast ranges from age 8-adult and the ensemble is brimming with energy throughout the entire show.
Performances are Nov. 28 at 2:30 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. and 29 at 2:30 p.m. and December 5 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and December 6 at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15-$30 and can be purchased online atwww.classactproductions.org.
The performances will be held in the Nancy Bock Center for Performing Arts on the campus of McCullough Jr. High, 3800 South Panther Creek Drive in The Woodlands.
