'A Christmas Carol' and the Black Bart Theater

Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol is presented this holiday season in Murphys at 580 S Algiers Street at the Black Bart Playhouse by Murphys Creek Theatre. Directed by Cyndie Hoffman-Klorer this talented cast brings this story of light, goodness and charity to the foothills. Narrated by Sean-Pierre Wilson, the story unfolds as Scrooge (Stephen Daly), insists that Christmas is a humbug. Neither his lovable nephew, nor affable solicitors and cheerful carolers can bring the joy of the season to Scrooge's miserable heart. When his 7 years dead partner Jacob Marley, played by Allen Test, appears to warn him of his last chance for salvation, Scrooge finds himself face to face with - himself. It isn't until he sees the pure kindness of the Cratchit family and the least member of it, Tiny Tim, that Scrooge begins to understand what is at stake.
