A SOUTHERN CHRISTMAS CAROL
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Rob Lauer
Musical Arrangements by Jeff Joyner
December 2 - 18, 2016
Based on “A Christmas Carol in Prose: A Ghost Story of Christmas” by Charles Dickens
In A Southern Christmas Carol, award-winning playwright Rob Lauer moves the classic tale of Scrooge from 1840’s London to Depression-era rural Georgia during the height of Jim Crow laws. “Though most of the world knows how Dickens’ story ends, Lauer did such an excellent job of tailoring the original story to fit the South that one is eager to see how this story will end,” The Albany Herald enthused; “Meant to explore some Southern themes like agriculture, racism, and poverty, Lauer pays close attention to detail: … biscuits, square dancing, gospel singing, Southern hostility, hospitality ‘ain’ts’, and hope chests, pork and collards.” It’s sure to be a new holiday favorite for patrons of all ages.
Produced by special arrangements with Leicester Bay Theatricals
