A Christmas Carol! An Old Friend Gets An Update

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 2:10 pm

This is Charleston Stage’s 12th production of A Christmas Carol and the evolution of our production continues.  Rehearsals began last week with a terrific cast.  Several cast members have done the show with us before but in different roles and many cast members are new to this production.    While we’ve had great casts in the past we thought this would be a way for our performers to take a new look at these familiar characters.

Taking the role of Scrooge is veteran David Ardrew who has often played Cratchit in the past.  Now he gets to be the Boss and order poor Cratchit around.  Newcomer Taylor Carnie, a member of one of Charleston Stage’s performance troupes for young people is taking on the role of Tiny Tim.

Other new touches include an all new score by new Resident Music Director , Amanda Wansa.   The score features some old favorities with new arrangements and a number of new carols, including  three new production numbers have been created.  Former Resident Acting Company Member, Lindsey Lamb has returned from New York to choreograph these new numbers.  Lindsey and her husband, Drew, who performed in a national tour of A Christmas Carol, will also be taking the roles of The Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present in this new production.

Stay tuned for updates on our blog and this new production takes shape.
