City Circle's A Christmas Carol opens Friday

Coralville - Using a sparkling adaptation by Barbara Field, City Circle Acting Company of Coralville will bring the classic tale Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol to life on the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts stage this holiday season.

The Dickens story, which ushered in many of our current ideas of "classic" holiday traditions, charts the path of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his redemption from selfishness and greed. Timeless lessons of community spirit, generosity and love make this seasonal parable particularly applicable to our current times.

Director Liz Tracey promises a heart-warming evening with more than a few thrills as the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future--as well as a truly frightening appearance by the ghost of Scrooge's business partner Marley--seek to give Scrooge a tour through his life and destiny.

Featuring a 20 person cast including Scott Strode as Scrooge, Patrick DuLaney as Marley, Josh Sazon as the Ghost of Christmas Past and Steve Rosse as the Ghost of Christmas Present, this production is a must-see event for theater fans of any age!
