Orange Theatre Company (OTC) is excited to return to the stage this December, from 2 till 11, with an original adaptation of the most beloved Christmas story of all time: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens!
OTC celebrates the Christmas Classic with an Orange twist.
A Christmas Carol is a cautionary tale about a grumpy, selfish old man, Ebenezer Scrooge.
He hates Christmas and is not generous to anyone, not even to himself.
One cold Christmas eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his old business partner Marley, followed by three ghosts: the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future.
The ghosts’ journey through time teaches Scrooge the error of his ways.
When he wakes up on Christmas Day, will he be transformed?
A Christmas Carol is a universal story about the importance of community, empathy and our ability to self-reflect and transform. There is a reason why it is called a classic. And, in many respects, A Christmas Carol was, and still is, a revolutionary piece.
It is a tirade against selfishness, ignorance and neglect. So many issues that Dickens himself was aware of concerning the social and economic distress in London’s early 1800’s, unfortunately still prevail in our society today.
Must the gap between the rich and poor continue to widen? What would the ghosts of the past, present and yet to come reveal today?
OTC’s A Christmas Carol has been adapted by James Johnson, with Hugh Mackay. The production will be directed by Jan Wienowiecki, and musically directed by Joanna Lucas.
