WTC’S “A CHRISTMAS CAROL” By Germaine Hupe
Dickens wrote “A Christmas Carol” in 1843, and the story, which became an immediate success, continues to charm readers and audiences to the present time,173 years later. There have been many dramatic versions of Dickens’ short novel including numerous stage plays, two musicals, a Disney animation for children, and 28 film versions, 7 of which were silent films. Thomas Edison himself produced one of the early silent films in 1910.
The current WTC production offers several scenes which are not usually included in acting scripts. These scenes are Director Jesse Akers’ adaptation of a 1951 screenplay by Noel Langley. They offer a view of banking and money market corruption which helps to explain the growth of poverty and suffering that afflicted the Victorian working class in Dickens’ own time.
The plot concerns the Christmas Eve conversion of Ebenezer Scrooge, “a grasping old sinner,” by means of a series of visits by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and his former partner Jacob Marley. The familiar characters include Scrooge’s long suffering clerk Bob Cratchit and his family. The gentle Tiny Tim, Scrooge’s lost love Alice, his beloved sister Fan and his nephew Fred are major featured roles in a production which requires 28 speaking parts in addition to a childrens caroling group and an adult singing choir.
Performances of “A Christmas Carol” are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, November 25, 26, and December 2 and 3. There will be matinee performances at 2 pm on November 27 and December 4. All performances are at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Avenue, Winters. Tickets are $15 for the Champagne Gala opening and the benefit for the Winters Music Boosters. Tickets for all other shows are $12 for adults, $8 for Senior and children 12 and under. For reservations call 530-795-4014 or www.winterstheatre.org.
