LALT presents 'A Christmas Carol' with two choruses

-A A +A
By Ann Mauzy

Los Alamos Little Theatre's production of "A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley" is Israel Horovitz's lively adaptation of the Charles Dickens story, with a large cast and two choruses. In this production Scrooge, played by Grady Hughes, and his old partner Marley, played by Paul Lewis, maintain a running dialogue through the familiar scenes of Christmases past, present and future. Although much dialogue is taken directly from Dickens, in this version Marley also serves as the play's narrator.

This production goes beyond the Dickens' morality play to include music and dancing for the whole family to enjoy. The play's producer and LALT President Jennifer Wadsack said, "In addition to an adult and a children's choir, four looming ghosts, and the rest of the traditional Dickensian characters, we will have a live fiddler on stage and some rousing dance numbers." She added, "Horovitz actually does write that a fiddler comes on stage, and dancing ensues during the Fezziwig party scene of Scrooge's Christmas Past."

Chris Kelley chose this play for her directing debut at LALT because, as she said, "We haven't had 'A Christmas Carol' in Los Alamos in seven years. This is such a nice version, and I thought it would be lots of fun to do. 'Carol' seemed like a great way to get my feet wet at LALT."
