SHS Theatre Presents "A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley"

The Snohomish High School Theatre Club opens their production of “A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley” this Friday, December 1, with evening shows and matinees through next week, ending on December 9.

Evening shows begin at 7pm, while matinee showings start at 1pm on Saturdays.

This play is directed by Scott Randall, who is the artistic director for the Red Curtain Foundation, a theatre group in Marysville.

This is the first time in several years that a professional director has been hired for an SHS production.

"A Christmas Carol: Scrooge & Marley" is an adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic story, adapted by Israel Horowitz. In this version of the play, Scrooge's dead partner, Jacob Marley, serves as narrator along the miser's redemption by the three spirits of past, present, and future.

“I have always wanted to direct a version of "A Christmas Carol" which focuses on the ghost story, and the intense emotional journey it would take to truly transform a man like Ebenezer Scrooge,” Randall said. “This adaptation allows for such a story to be told, and will feature lots of stage magic, surprise and shock to help the audience rejoice in Scrooge's redemption.”

The production will run two weeks, with junior Drew Winston and senior Foster John taking on the titular roles of Scrooge and Marley.
