MRS. CRATCHIT’S WILD CHRISTMAS BINGE
by Christopher Durang

Directed by: Larry Turner
Assistant Director:  Mark Carovale

Performances:
December 1 and  8 at 8:00 pm
December 2, 3, 9 & 10 at 2:00pm

Suffice to say this is not your usual adaptation of the well-known story about Ebenezer Scrooge’s Christmas transformation.  No, this is a musical parody with a very different Mrs. Cratchit than the long-suffering, goody-goody wife in the original story.  Throw in a Ghost who can’t seem to get Scrooge to the right places in neither  the past, present nor future, 21 Cratchit children, and two or three other characters not in the original story, and  you have a new definition of  “Binge”- watching.
