ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A highly inventive adaptation of the classic Dickens’ story, paired down to its essential elements. In this version, we encounter a company of traveling players about to enact Dickens’ story. As the on-stage trunk of supplies opens, actors and clowns spill out and roll on. The gruff stage manager and prop boy check the show’s props, which are shabby and third rate, but the troupe improvises by creating a magical world of make-believe. This is considered a delightful holiday gift for the whole family.
‘A Christmas Carol’ will be on stage at the Albuquerque Little Theater through December 24. Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $14 – $24.
