Tomorrow is my last scheduled performance with A Christmas Carol at Wayside. The show doesn’t close until Dec. 28, but I had a prior commitment that made me unavailable after the 19th. David Maga and I share the role of Bob Cratchit, so he will take it from here.
I’ll be a little sad to see this end. This is a new adaptation by my friends and colleagues Warner Crocker and Steve Przybylski. I enjoy doing new work. It evolves during the rehearsal process. It can be a challenge when changes start flying at you, but that’s part of what I like. It’s also gratifying when your suggestions make it into the final draft.
I have also enjoyed working with this remarkably talented cast. We played together very well for such a large group. I’m very proud of all of the work we did.
So, this is my final Carol post. What can I say but “God bless us. Every one!”
