Metropolis Performing Arts Center presents: A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol, the musical production based on the Charles Dickens classic will be staged at the Metropolis Performing Arts Center for the 11th year running. With planning nearly a year in the making, the show is again projected to be moving and thought provoking.
The show is the most popular holiday themed musical of the year, and with cast size expected to stay at 28 again they will have been perfecting their English accents to get the perfect pitch. Dickens himself chose this novel as his first to adapt to a stage production after its first publication in 1843. Since then, A Christmas Carol has been an icon of Christmas theatre.
While it is not known for sure, it is believed that Charles drew his inspiration for the novel mainly from his humiliating childhood experiences and sympathy for the poor. What resulted was what many claim to have saved Christmas and bought the joy and merriness back to it. The novel won instant praise and still does as many children learn about the book in their youth. Remarkable the novel is still in print to this day.
The main character, Ebenezer Scrooge is bitter and miserable before an emotional transformation ideologically, ethically and emotionally as a result of supernatural visits from Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas.
