A Christmas Carol 2016
A Christmas Carol

Performed Dec 2 & 3 in support of United Campus Ministry

 

A Christmas Carol On Friday and Saturday, December 2-3, 2016, Lutheran Shared Ministry’s the LSM Players presented A Christmas Carol in Fellowship Hall. The performances were well attended. Donations for tickets supported United Campus Ministry of Penn College.

This distaff adaptation, under the direction of Deb Buckman, featured Bernadette Jones as Eudora Scrooge, with Ben Hartman narrating.  Brad Heffner appeared in the role of Ebenezer’s ghost and that of Christmas Present.  Other phantom appearances included Daisy LeBlanc as Christmas Past and Gordy Emick as Christmas Yet-to-Come.  The Cratchit family was represented by Nate Fulkerson as Bob, Danielle Murphy as the Mrs., Gabriella Gregory as Mary, and Jayden Roberts as Tiny Tim.

The jolly nephew and the remorseful former fiancÚ were both portrayed by Jared Whitford, while Maya Holmes appeared as the young Eudora.  As the charity collector, David Whitman tried to get a donation from Scrooge.  Owen Gair, as the Turkey Boy, rounded out the cast.

Donna & Pr. Ken Elkin, Kent & Maria Weaver, and Laura & Grace Schreckengast tied the scenes together with a wide array of carols.  Sadie Wentzel provided vocal accompaniment to the hauntings.

This adaptation of A Christmas Carol featuring female Scrooge was written by Bernadette Haas Jones and adapted from the traditional version of this well-known story.
