Adapted from the book by Charles Dickens
directed by Pete Parkin

In this adaptation of Dickens’ classic tale, a group of homeless people break into an abandoned theater on Christmas Eve to escape the cold. Looking around in hopes of finding some food or perhaps an old costume for warmth, one of them comes across a copy of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

To take their minds off the cold and their dreary circumstances they decide to “act out” the story. Using things they find lying about the stage (an old door becomes Scrooge’s bed set upon some milk crates and the same door set on garbage cans becomes the Cratchit’s Christmas dinner table) they set about to tell this story.

The Adobe Theater is holding a food drive for the duration of the run of this show. Please bring non-perishable food items to support it. There are boxes in the lobby for your contributions. Thanks for your support!

The cast for the Adobe Theater’s special adaptation of this classic Christmas tale includes some of the Albuquerque area’s finest actors and some up-and-coming young performers, all of whom are taking on multiple roles for this production. We’d like to say congratulations and welcome to Dyan Dazzo, Jim Duran, Neil Faulconbridge, Rhett Gleason, Timothy Kupjack, Lorri Oliver, Tom Poncho, Anastasia Price, McKenzie Ross, Meredith Schwall, Sophia Schwall and Linda Wilson.

An Adobe Christmas Carol opens Friday, November 22 through Sunday, December 22 at The Adobe Theater.
