A Christmas Carol Auditions – 1503313
11-05-15 – Albany, NY>Buffalo, NY – A Christmas Carol tells the story of a bitter old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation into a gentler, kindlier man after visitations by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come. The book was written at a time when the British were examining and exploring Christmas traditions from the past as well as new customs such as Christmas cards and Christmas trees. Carol singing took a new lease on life during this time. Dickens’ sources for the tale appear to be many and varied, but are, principally, the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales.
Dickens’ Carol was one of the greatest influences in rejuvenating the old Christmas traditions of England, but, while it brings to the reader images of light, joy, warmth and life, it also brings strong and unforgettable images of darkness, despair, coldness, sadness, and death. Scrooge himself is the embodiment of winter, and, just as winter is followed by spring and the renewal of life, so too is Scrooge’s cold, pinched heart restored to the innocent goodwill he had known in his childhood and youth. A Christmas Carol remains popular-having never been out of print and has been adapted many times to film, stage, opera, and other media. — Project Type: Live Event

Under pressure from the sleazy big banker, Mr. Potter, George & Uncle Billy try to keep things afloat. But when Uncle Billy (who could be more perfect than Jerry Van Dyke in this role?) misplaces $8,000 just as the bank examiner comes to audit the books, George, who is already feeling the heat from too many responsibilities, blows his cool and wishes he had never existed. Guided by Clarence the Angel, George is shown how life would be without him. And it isn’t a good life for those who have been a part of George’s mundane existence. “Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives,” Clarence observes.
