Once again, the students at Wayne State will be performing 'A Christmas Carol'. 'A Christmas Carol,' adapted from the story by Charles Dickerson is by John Wolf and Tom Aulino. The performances will take place at the Bonstelle theater, now playing from December 1-17.
This year the play is being directed by Katie Campbell.
“When I was approached about directing this year’s production at Wayne state, I was delighted,” said Campbell. “’It has been an absolute honor to work with the entire creative team, cast, and crew in bringing to life this heartfelt story full of complexity, verve, and magical realism to the stage.”
Ebenezer Scrooge, an old moneylender played by student John Bergeron, hates everything that embodies the joy of Christmas, staying to himself, being angry when someone mentions the holiday, and being rude and nasty to others. In the play he struggles to become a better man and find the true meaning of Christmas.
“The cast and crew are amazing I totally love being a part of it” said crew member Laura Rose.
James kern is currently a MFA major who is in his junior year said one of the best things about the play is the cast.
“It was easy to embody my character because it’s Christmas and all I had to do was think of all the fun stuff that came with it,” said Jasmine walker who played the Ghost of Christmas past.
