(Roswell, GA) Atlanta stage veteran Brink Miller knows a lot about Ebenezer Scrooge. After all, he's been playing the part in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in Roswell every Christmas for 13 straight years. Nevertheless, this Christmas, he'll be back on the Kudzu Playhouse stage to learn his life lessons once again – with the help of some ghostly visitors.
A huge hit every Christmas season, "A Christmas Carol," will be returning to Kudzu Playhouse, this time at their new location just north of the corner of Alpharetta Highway and Holcomb Bridge Road in Brannon Square shopping center.
In this holiday favorite, Charles Dickens shows us Ebenezer Scrooge as he falls asleep in his dingy, cold quarters on Christmas Eve. The old miser is visited by three ghosts, each revealing to Scrooge his wrong doings and what will happen if he continues in his evil ways. A traditional holiday classic for the entire family, filled with old English Christmas Carols guaranteed to fill you with the spirit and warm your heart.
Wally Hinds knows all about Scrooge, too, because he's been producing and directing the show for over a dozen years as well. This year's production will once again feature a large cast of more than 40 local actors, both adults and children, many of whom have performed this play in Roswell before. "For many of us 'A Christmas Carol' is our Christmas tradition and it just wouldn't be Christmas without it," he said. "We hope every family will join our theater family and celebrate this seasonal classic together."
The production remains faithful to the traditional Charles Dickens' version with an appropriately quaint setting and period costumes, yet it also features many old English Christmas Carols guaranteed to fill you with the spirit and warm your heart.
