This Production Features a Rotating Cast of Many & "Scrooge's Special Gift Exchange" to those Who Bring Items for HCC's Food Pantry to Assist Students in Need!

Arts Collective (AC) brings this beloved Dickens story to life in the form of a vintage 1940’s radio broadcast complete with storytelling, live action, live sound effects, and music performed by a company of many actors, comprised of students, alumni, staff, faculty, and guest artists. Many of the actors will be playing different roles at each performance. Enjoy AC’s rollicking version of this holiday classic, where Scrooge takes his magical journey toward the true meaning and spirit of the season in a perennial family favorite that will leave no one saying, “Bah, humbug!” 

Audiences who bring items for HCC’s Food Pantry will receive a tasty intermission treat from Arts Collective. View the list of suggested donations here! 

“From day one,” says director S.G. Kramer, “I wanted to include a huge, rotating and diverse company of actors who perform various roles each performance, provide audiences with opportunities to experience the classic journey in various ways, approach the process by creatively merging a staged reading with simple, low-budget production elements, and finally, honor the spirit of the season and the message of the play in partnering with HCC’s Food Pantry to assist HCC students in need. We can’t wait to share the magical results.”

Press Quote: "Where else can you find a trio of ghosts paying visits after midnight to a cranky cuss who claims Christmas is a cause for complaints and chaos. Scrooge is set to learn a powerful lesson about life and love. His heart, hardened like steel, is softened and sweetened in the process."  – Fairfield Patch, CT
