'A Christmas Carol' Returns to Stage for Holidays

November 2, 2006

The Lindenwood University Theatre Department will observe its tradition of presenting “A Christmas Carol” with a production of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story that opens Nov. 30.

The play will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2, 8 and 9 with a 2 p.m. matinee on Dec. 2. All performances will be in Jelkyl Theatre, which is located on the main floor of Roemer Hall on the main Lindenwood campus, at 209 S. Kingshighway in St. Charles.

Ticket prices are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and $6 for students, ages 5-18. For reservations, contact the Box Office at 636-949-4878. Group rates are available.

This entertaining story of redemption continues to enchant audiences with its simple message of selfless giving, set amid the sociological atmosphere of mid-19th century London. Ebenezer Scrooge learns to embrace the “true Christmas spirit” and that mankind must help one another as he survives a series of revelations by the ghosts of past, present and future.

“The ideas played out in ‘A Christmas Carol’ are as timely today as they were when Charles Dickens first penned this tale,” said Ted Gregory, director of the Lindenwood Theatre program. “Audiences are still delighted by the trials and tribulations of Ebenezer Scrooge, and this stage version will undoubtedly stir up the holiday spirit.”

The director of the production is Larry D. Quiggins, a member of the Lindenwood theatre faculty, who will be working from his own stage adaptation of Dickens’ story. The student director is Michael Perkins. The stage manager is Jane Kohnen. The sound, set, and lighting design is by Donnell Walsh. The costume design is by Cynda Galikin. The properties mistress is Jeannette Mattingly.

The cast features Mike Dowdy as Ebenezer Scrooge and also includes Brad Lewandowski, Jamie Fritz, Mike Junkal, Tom Lehmann, Jessie Held, Adam Loyd, Peter Colombatto, Betsy Bowman, Wes Rankin, Lindsay Bartlett, Mike Howington, Brian Kappler, Michelle Sauer, Sandra Kliene, Mike Lara, Katie Lindley, Kari Lorenz, Amanda McMichael, Jonathan Turner, Shauna Staryak, Sarah Porter, Robert Mitchell, James T. Quiggins, Benjamin Quiggins, Michael Faletti, Aimee Dion, Toni Faletti, Quinton Rogers, Jordan Knobbe, Micaela Mason, Hayley Schaub, Ryan Sebacher, and Courtney Thomason.
