HYDE PARK, N.Y. -- The Half Moon Theatre's production of "A Christmas Carol" will open Saturday, Dec. 5 at the Culinary Institute of America.
"'A Christmas Carol' is the perfect holiday show for the whole family,” said Half Moon Theatre Managing Director Kristy Grimes. “We’re delighted to discover this exciting adaptation by Patrick Barlow, which premiered at the Delaware Theatre Company in 2012. Barlow highlights the humor and spookiness of the tale, with lots of physicality as the actors have to continually ‘transform’ into different characters, but without losing the heart of the story. Give your kids their first 'A Christmas Carol' experience, or bring your office mates, clients, or out-of-town guests for an exceptional holiday outing.”
The production is directed by Michael Schiralli and stars Darrell James as Scrooge, along with Wayne Pyle, Maria Silverman, Shona Tucker and Ryan Walter.
There will be an opening-night reception at 8 p.m., at which patrons can meet the cast and enjoy a dessert reception after the show.
Performances take place at 8 p.m. Dec. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19. Sunday matinees are scheduled for 2 p.m. Dec. 6 and 13 with an added performance at 7 p.m. Dec. 16.
