Georgetown Palace Theatre presents Dickens’ Christmas Carol
From the author of the popular Faith County and An Evening of Culture – Faith County II comes a completely hilarious adaptation of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. From the bonny shores of England comes the Styckes-Upon-Thump Repertory Theatre Company, a stuffy old traveling troupe embarking on their 15th annual farewell tour of the Dickens’ tale.
Sweet Cynthia Imbry, the general understudy, suddenly finds herself thrust onstage to perform a role she’s ill-prepared for. Bettina, the company diva, pretends to be ill, certain the production will be cancelled. However, much to her shock and rage, the show does go on without her. Roles are shuffled at the last minute and poor Cynthia finds herself center stage.
The play begins but midway through the theatre doors open and in rushes Bettina, determined to reclaim her role at any cost. Mayhem ensues as this professional company scrambles to keep the show going and everything that could possibly go wrong does, to hilarious, ridiculous results.
