Red Mask Players Presents their Christmas fundraiser show
A Dickens' Christmas Carol
byMark Landon Smith
Directed by Jamey Coutant
From the bonny shores of England comes the Styckes-Upon-Thump Repertory Theatre Company, a stuffy old travelling troupe embarking on their fifteenth annual farewell tour of the Dickens' tale
The company includes Sir Selsdon Piddock, the consummate actor, in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge, with Mrs. Bettina Salisbury, Dame Rowena Middleton-Lewis, Mrs. Cordelia ffoliet-ffolkes ffortescue Woods, Teddy Shub and Elyot Crummels in multiple supporting roles
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 mid-way through the theatre doors open and in rushes Bettina, determined to reclaim her roles
Mayhem ensues as this professional company scrambles to keep the show going and everything that could possibly go wrong does, to hilarious, ridiculous results!
