Community Players Theatre

A Theatre for Young People Production


This excellent adaptation of Dickens’ beloved story has all the humor and spirit of the Christmas season. The Narrator, who appears as Charles Dickens, takes us along each scene as the characters speak, linking all of the scenes as the story unfolds. The play is framed musically by a choir of young people who are in character as the Carolers. They sing Christmas carols to bridge the connecting scenes, and serve as background in colorful tones to the words of the Narrator.

Based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Dramatic Adaptation by Dailey Paskman

School shows were offered on the two Fridays of the run. 650 students attended the school shows.
