Clarksville, TN – Following the flurry of out-of-town guests and turkey dinners, unwind at the Roxy Regional Theatre with a rollicking musical favorite sure to put you in the holiday spirit. In keeping with tradition and in celebration of Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday, John McDonald will once again don his top hat as Ebenezer Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol”, running through December 22nd.
Under the direction of Tom Thayer, Dickens’ classic tale of Christmases Past, Present and Future meets such holiday standards as “A-Caroling We Go,” “Silent Night,” “Christmas Is Here,” “Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown” and more.
“A Christmas Carol” features the talents of Ryan Bowie, Kaitlin Doughty, Humberto Figueroa, Michelle Foletta, Leslie Greene, Rob Rodems and Colin Ryan, along with a rotating cast of twenty-five local youth portraying the Cratchit children: Gavin Berlyak, Lauren Mund, Ashley Knowles, Sydney Barksdale and Jesse Boyle as Martha; Truman Jepson, Scott Hall, Samuel Beals, Mitchell Wolfe and Christian Rieke as Peter; Cheyenne Deibert, Summer Aoki, Kourtni Cottrell, Whitney Flickinger and Madeline O’Connor as Belinda; Kaevon Burney, Ali Arnold, Emma Justice, Georgia Smith and Addisyn Bryant as the Urchin; and Roseanna Vaughn, Bella Rose Cargill, Nathanael Dorminey, Connor Harty and Dallas Harty as Tiny Tim.
