NVA New Play Festival: A Christmas Carol

Friday, November 26 2010
8:00 PM to 10:00 PM

New Village Arts
2787 State St.
Carlsbad, CA

Closing the New Village Arts New Play Festival November 26-28, 2010, will be a workshop production of a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL, written by NVA Ensemble Member Rachael VanWormer and Brian Mackey. This minimalist telling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol celebrates the language of the novel, with ninety-eight percent of the script taken verbatim from Dickens’ own words. The pared back production focuses on the humanity of the characters, the idea of appreciating however much – or little – one has, and hones in on, as Dickens’ wrote in the foreword to the book, “raising the ghost of an idea” – that, despite the worst odds, any individual has within them the power to change for the better.

Running November 26-28, 2010 performances are Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm. (This is the only professional Christmas Carol production in all of North County this season! Don't miss it!)

Tickets are $15 and available by calling the box office at 760-433-3245.
