Rediscovering A Christmas Carol-Julian Wiles, playwright/adapter

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 2:25 pm

Last night I attended the Designer’s Runthru of our new production of A Christmas Carol, A Ghost Story of Christmas.  This is the first runthru of the show and gives the set, lighting, sound designers and the playwright a chance to see the show on its feet for the first time.  What amazed me, even though I wrote this adaptation and have directed or seen the show at least 200 times,  once more I was drawn into the story, laughed out loud and was touched by Tiny Tim—and all that without the stunning sets, costumes and special effects still to come.  We’ve got a terrific cast this year who have found more humor, more good cheer than ever before—and some of the finest singing the show has ever had.  I was of course excited to hear the new lines and see the new scenes I’ve added this year but it was really the great story of Charles Dickens that once more drew me in.  I can see why this story has entranced readers and audiences for almost 200 years.  It’s wonderful to be able to share this timeless and moving story each year with the Charleston Community.  Can’t wait for you to see this year’s version.
