For more than 30 years, audiences from throughout the region have come to Lindenwood to enjoy Charles Dickens’ classic story of a miserly old man and his Christmas Eve journey of self-discovery in the company of three ghosts.
This year’s production is from a new adaptation by director Becca Helms and actor Michael Juncal, who portrays Scrooge in the play.
“I’ve been involved with Lindenwood’s A Christmas Carol since I was a freshman here,” said Helms, a graduate student. “I always thought there was more to the story that the audience never got to see, so Michael Juncal and I discussed it at length and decided to create a new adaption. The story is still the wonderful tale you’ve come to love, with a handful of new elements and surprises. Come see Dickens’s holiday classic with some new moments never before seen on stage.”
In addition to Juncal, the cast features Joe Bayne as Bob Cratchitt and Charlie Rosser as Tiny Tim. Also featured are Christopher Strawhun, Jacquelyn Danter, Taylor Poore, Shelby Davis, Shane Bosillo, and Nicole Dele. Assisting Helms are stage manager Jordan Smith and assistant stage managers Christina Smith and Katie Ritter. Scenic design is by Donnell Walsh with costumes designed by Donna Northcott. Sound and lighting design are by Sarah Thompson and Corey Verdusco, respectively. Choreography and movement are designed by Rafael Quintas.
