'Christmas Carol' Returns to Temple
Temple Theatre welcomes back "A Christmas Carol" as Sanford's newest holiday tradition, continuing through Dec. 19.
As Charles Dickens' classic, this production features the traditional story of Scrooge, ghosts and life-changing decisions.
"Come enjoy traditional Christmas carols, as well as some new songs composed exclusively for this production by Michael Hoagland," says a spokesman. "One of the songs, 'Dear Mr. Jesus,' was recorded by Lisa Dames last year and it became number one online on the country Christmas charts."
"A Christmas Carol" boasts a cast of 38, 20 of whom are professionals. The others are local children and adults who want to be involved in theater. With elaborate costuming, set and design, Temple's production uses the Dickens' narrative as dialogue; therefore, the story is told as it has been for centuries in all of its Victorian splendor.
Temple Theatre's "A Christmas Carol" is directed and choreographed by artistic director Peggy Taphorn, who also served as the costume coordinator for the show. Michael Hoagland is the musical director; Eileen Greenbaum-Mintz is the scenic designer; Sasha T. Fuller is the stage manager; Michael Brocki is the technical director, and David Castaneda is the lighting designer.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Tickets are available by calling Temple Theatre's box office at (919) 774-4155, or purchase tickets online at www.templeshows.com.
The theater is located in downtown Sanford.
