PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Come join us in the Theatre in the Round for a unique perspective of this wonderful classic tale full of drama, laughter and music full of special effects and lighting. Once again we are visited by three ghosts who show Ebenezer Scrooge the error of his ways. A Christmas Carol is a morality tale of an old and bitter miser, Ebenezer Scrooge who undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of one night. Mr. Scrooge is a financier/money-changer who has devoted his life to the accumulation of wealth. He holds anything other than money in contempt, including friendship, love and the Christmas season. This highly successful version of Charles Dickens tale has become Roswell's holiday favorite and its annual tradition.

Rosewater Theatre's "A Christmas Carol" Captures the esssence of Dickens
by Occasional Theater Patron
Monday, December 7, 2009
4.0
I very much enjoyed Rosewater Theatre's production of "A Christmas Carol." It captures the essence of Charles Dickens' story & 19th century London. Bill Pacer as Ebenezer Scrooge is outstanding. Strong performances by Duke Deuschle as Bob Cratchit, DeShon Jackson as Ghost of Christmas Present, Connor Sherouse as Ghosts of Christmas Past and Future, and Santiago Trueba as Tiny Tim. C.G. Garcias as Jacob Marley is also very good, although more a minor role. I would think it is difficult to produce this play and make it different from the rest, but Rosewater Theatre captures the essence of Dickens and the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge.

I attended the show as well one night-- what particular parts of the characters stood out? I thoroughly enjoyed Pacer's characterizations. Didn't they also do a production of Sweeney Todd? I would have loved to have seen it in the space!
Sweeney Todd was a spectacular show! by fanatic
So I need to come out and see Christmas Carol! I hear its almost a whole new cast this year!
