Clarksville, TN – Tonight, Friday, December 18th at 8:00pm and Saturday afternoon, December 19th at 2:00pm are the final two shows for the Roxy Regional Theatre’s performance of “A Christmas Carol”. This is your last chance to see what has become a Christmas tradition in Clarksville.
All good things must come to an end, and signature performances are no exception. After nine years of delivering countless “Bah Humbugs” upon the Roxy Regional Theatre stage, John McDonald will hang up his hat as the miserly businessman Ebenezer Scrooge with this year’s production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.
Under the direction of Tom Thayer, Dickens’ classic tale of Christmases Past, Present and Future meets such holiday standards as “Deck the Halls,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “What Child Is This,” “I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In” and more, performed to the music of acoustic instrumentalists Red River Breeze.
Featuring Kelley Barker, Leslie Greene, James Hansen, Lindsay Nantz, Matthew Smolko and Jon Whitney, along with a rotating cast of twenty-three local youth portraying the Cratchit children — Emma Justice, Lauren Mund, Sidney McCarty and Madeline O’Connor as Martha; Magnus DoVanne, Jacob Johnson, Riley Jenkins and Stephen Adeleye as Peter; Ava DoVanne, Anna Ryan, Lillie Rich and Arden Allmon as Belinda; Aramae DoVanne, Andrew Patton, Kristin Ross and Michael Phillips as Tiny Tim; Georgia Smith, Kourtni Cottrell, Breanna Cox and Jesse Boyle as Little Miss; and Addison Drevlow, Olivia Casey and Peter Adeleye as the Street Urchin — this rollicking musical morsel is sure to soften even the hardest of hearts with its story of redemption and rediscovery of the true meaning of the season.
“A Christmas Carol” plays December 18th at 8:00pm; and December 19th at 2:00pm.
