  1. I saw this show with my wife. Amazed at the quality of the show. The actor playing Scrooge was better than some of the older men I have seen. Maybe the trick is to cast them younger and just make them look older. I also enjoyed the spirit of Christmas Present, and some minor characters such as Scrooge’s maid. Cratchit and family worked well as a contrast to Scrooge. I also enjoyed the diversity in their version. Whatever the case, it was fantastic and realistic. The ghosts aside I mean. I did go back to see their most recent show “My Favorite Year” and was not as pleased, but they will still always have my support after A Christmas Carol. I enjoyed the recent show, but the quality went down, however I know it will go back up! Majority of the actors must have graduated and they are in a recruiting year. I know those from Christmas Carol will go on to do great things. You made an old man and his wife enjoy Christmas and realize a perfectly viable theatre was in the neighborhood. Kingsway has talent like no other.
