You are seated in an auditorium of indeterminate size; the walls extending into blackness, the ceiling shrouded by the darkness as well…the murmurs of the faceless audience members around you has reached its peak, but is beginning to subside…the lights are dimming, leaving only a solitary, brightly glowing bulb dangling from a string above center stage…its dim but powerful light scatters shifting shadows around the entire theater…the shadows appear to culminate on stage, encircling the light, and just as it extinguishes, you catch a fleeting glimpse of the figure of a smiling man beneath it, and you realize, for the 1st time, that you are in The Ghost Light Theater.
Welcome Dearest Friends, new & old! We have an extra magical, extra spooky Holiday Special in 2 parts for you all this festive season. Part of what makes this so magical and truly special is the fact that for the 1st time ever in our history, this production of Charles Dickens’ Literary Christmas Classic features a full cast! Not only that, but it is our own original audio drama adaptation of this Legendary Yuletide Tale. This is Part 1, and Part 2 will be released very soon in the coming days.
Featured in the cast are: Scott Wichmann as Ebenezer Scrooge, William Cardozo as Bob Cratchit, Darren M. Johnson as Jacob Marley/Nathaniel/Fezziwig, Tess Kay as Mrs. Cratchit, Kathryn Gardner as Martha Cracthit, Charlotte Kulak as “Tiny” Tim Cratchit/Fred’s Wife, A.J. White as Fred/Belle’s Husband, Zoë Dean as Belle/the Child, Amber Fe Armstrong as Fan, Abigail Carter as The Ghost of Christmas Past, Maria Lo Presti as The Ghost of Christmas Present, and Dana Noel as The Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Come.
