Characters will fly across the stage as four local art organizations, Main Street Theater, Sulphur Springs Symphony League, Northeast Texas Choral Society, and Bright Star League of Cultural Arts, join together for the production of A Christmas Carol, The Musical, December 2-4 at the Sulphur Springs High School/Civic Center Auditorium, 1200 Houston Street.
Music and pageantry make this holiday classic an event for the whole family. Over sixty persons plus orchestra, Chorus singers, and dancers will participate in three performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The cast of characters in the story are well known and will be portrayed by well-known local citizens. All the central characters will sing throughout the musical. District Judge Eddie Northcutt is Ebenezer Scrooge. Justice of the Peace Brad Cummings is Bob Cratchit. Bill Owens is the Ghost of Jacob Marley. Ghosts of Christmas past, present and to come are played by Monica Lancaster, Matthew Flock, and Dawn Doyle Jones.
Rehearsals began in September and recently a specialty company in Kentucky fitted the flight gear at the auditorium.
Proceeds from the event will fund the arts in Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County. Tickets are available online at www.communitychristmascarol.com or in person at the civic center. Tickets will be available at the door for each performance.
