1) Why do you enjoy doing A Christmas Carol?
It’s a beautiful story with beautiful language that means a lot to people at Christmas time.
2) Why do you think people enjoy Charles Dickens?
His language is really beautiful and ornate, but I particularly like his dry wit.
3) What is your favorite part of doing this story?
It’s really nice to see everyone coming together to tell the story. I love singing a lot of the classic Christmas Carols we incorporate into the story.
4) Who do you play in the piece? Which is your favorite part? Why
I play three characters this year, Belle, Mrs. Fred and the Charwoman. Mrs. Fred is always my favorite, even though it’s not a very large role. The world of Fred’s party scene is so filled with joy and love that it’s a treat to spend a few minutes in it every day.
