Staten Island’s Sundog Theatre has announced its 2017-2018 Season: A Christmas Carol, The Originals: Radio Play Readings, Scenes from the Staten Island Ferry and the musical, Baby.
“Sundog’s very eclectic season is designed to appeal to a variety of theatrical interests. We have comedy, drama, musical theatre, original theatre, politics, and a classic holiday tale. As we serve the entire Island and beyond, there is something for everyone”, states Sundog’s Executive Director Susan Fenley.
A Christmas Carol – This year’s presentation of this timeless holiday tale takes Sundog Theatre to Maryland and New Jersey, along with showings on Staten Island at P.S. 20 and CSI.
Sundog Theatre brings you Scrooge, the three Ghosts of Christmas, and a host of other Dickensian characters in this beloved tale of redemption and enchantment. The show is geared towards young audiences, and is appropriate for all ages. Children will enjoy richly drawn characters that pop out of the book and onto the stage, and will be thrilled when they see a child chosen from the audience to portray Tiny Tim!
Sundog’s presentation stays true to Dickens’ original story, adapted and directed for the stage by Cash Tilton, and original songs by Susan Mondzak and featuring a cast of six professional actors. Susan Fenley is Producer.
Cast: Catherine DeLuce (Belle & others), Jonathan Fluck (Ebenezer Scrooge), Natalie Martzial (Mrs. Cratchit & others), Cheney Morgan (Jacob Marley & others), Kevin F Rogers(Young Scrooge & others), and John Scamardella (Bob Cratchit & others).?
