Tickets now available for ‘A Christmas Carol’

The Christmas classic by Charles Dickens has been a family holiday favorite for many, many years.

Most are familiar with the theme where miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by the ghosts of his late partner, Jacob Marley, by Christmas Past, Present and Future. They all help him to see who he has become, and show him how to redeem himself and reconcile with his family and neighbors.

“The play has appeal as a family play,” says Mike Inlow, who is directing the Bainbridge Little Theatre version. “It is a play for all ages and presents an opportunity to people who are hunting for something special to do during the Christmas season.”

Inlow is excited about his large cast of 32 that introduces some new actors, as well as bringing back some that are familiar with Bainbridge audiences.

Richard Whitehead takes on the role of Scrooge, while Bob Cratchett is played by Curtis Robinson, who returns to the stage for the first time since he left high school.

Nyles Odum, who also grew up in Bainbridge, will be making his first appearance in an adult play as Scrooge’s nephew Fred. Edward Moorhead, who recently played one of the sons in “Lost in Yonkers,” will be on stage in multiple roles, as he takes on the ghost of Jacob Marley and Christmas Future. Cooper Genovar, the young teen who played the brother to Moorhead, is back as Peter. Tiny Tim is actually played by a girl, Lanie Gay, who is enjoying her time with the theatre productions.

Without giving away too much more, be aware that Henry Intili and Ida Cooksey are united on stage again as the cantankerous Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig.

The show opens Thursday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m. and continues Dec. 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m., closing Sunday, December 3 at 2:30 p.m.
