The University Wits welcomes in the Holiday Season with a delightful twist on the classic tale that’s fun for the whole family: A Christmas Carol by Doris Baizley.
This hilarious and heart-warming adaptation tells the story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge who, with the help of some Christmas ghosts, discovers the love and joy of Christmastime. Baizley’s inventive and entertaining reimagining finds a group of traveling actors attempting to perform Charles Dickens’ story only to discover that their lead actors are nowhere to be seen. But with a little luck and a lot of help from their miserly “Stage Manager” and tiny “Prop Boy”, the company is able to bring the play to life!
