A Christmas Carol
GTC Burbank
Burbank, CA
Share this event:







Three amazing actors, two very long scarves, and one glowing candle join forces with the original words as written by Charles Dickens to bring his holiday classic to vibrant new life. You'll experience "A Christmas Carol" like you never have before in this unique adaptation by GTC Artistic Director Kevin Cochran.

Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, Marley's Ghost, Scrooge and the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future all make their appearance as the three actors guide us through the story  sometimes as narrators, sometimes as storytellers, and sometimes as characters, but always using the actual words of Charles Dickens.

"I wanted to get back to 'A Christmas Carol's' storytelling roots," says GTC Artistic Director Kevin Cochran. "To give people a sense of what it must have been like to hear Charles Dickens present the story to an audience as he did many times; yet, also keep the excitement of Scrooge's interactions with Marley's Ghost and the Christmas Spirits."

The play is presented as a special program of Grove Theater Center's New Play Initiative. Previous New Play Initiative projects include "Eternal Equinox" (which played Off-Broadway at 59e59 Theaters in NYC last Spring), "Blakeda Musical!" (LA Ovation Award for Best New Musical), "Straight Up with a Twist" (Ovation nomination for Best Solo Performance & 5 month run in NYC at The Players Theater), "R.R.R.E.D." (four LA Weekly nominations and a special event at the New York Musical Theater Workshop), "Bobby & Matt" (part of the 15th annual International Fringe Festival of New York City) and "Film Chinois" (Ovation Award for Best New Play).

The cast includes Kate Danley, David Allen Jones, and Frank Simons (all appearing courtesy of Actors' Equity Association). Mr. Jones recently received an LA Ovation nomination for his portrayal of Professor Marvel and the Wizard in "The Wizard of Oz." The design is by three time Ovation nominee Leonard Ogden. The show is directed by GTC Artistic Director Kevin Cochran (multiple Ovation, LA Weekly, and OC Weekly Award nominations and wins).
