Richmond Community Theatre Presents Christmas Comedy
"Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)," by Michael Carlton, James Fitzgerald and John Alvarez, is a fast-paced "Saturday Night Live"-like romp through every famous Christmas story you can think of - in about an hour and a half.
Preparing to start, one of the three characters in the show sums it up (imagine a wrestler announcer's voice): "Christmas Extreme! Let's get ready to Jingle!!"
And Richmond Community Theatre is preparing twice as much fun, by casting twice as many actors. Audiences can choose to see one of two casts, or they can see the same show twice with two different casts. One cast will perform Dec. 1, 3, 9 and 11. The members of that cast are T.J. Godwin, Michael Morman and Collette Tate. The second cast will perform Dec. 2, 4, 8 and 10. This cast includes Austin Glock Andrews, Marti Newbold and April Rogers.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the play will begin at 8 p.m. On Sunday, the play will begin at 2 p.m. All tickets are $9 general admission. Season tickets are also still available for $25 per ticket. Season tickets include a single ticket for each play this season, "Every Christmas Story Ever Told," "Raisin in the Sun" and "Second Samuel."
In addition to the play, 30 minutes prior to each performance, there will be featured community choruses caroling for each audience. The community groups will include: the First Presbyterian Choir, St. Mary's Holiness Choir, the West Rockingham United Methodist Choir, the Rockingham Community Choir, the Red Hat Society and more.
"Raisin in the Sun," a drama by Lorraine Hansberry, will be presented in celebration of Black History Month at RCT. The show will take place Feb. 16-25.
Auditions will be held Dec. 5 and 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. The cast consists of seven men, three women and one boy.
