Buck Creek Players will stage a unique adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” when presenting “A Dickens’ Christmas Carol: A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultuous Acts.”
From the shores of England comes the Styckes-Upon-Thump Repertory Theatre Company, a stuffy old traveling troupe embarking on their 15th annual farewell tour of the Dickens’ tale.
Cynthia Imbry, the general understudy, suddenly finds herself thrust on stage to perform a role that she’s ill-prepared for. Bettina, the company diva, pretends to be ill, certain the production will be cancelled. However, much to her shock and rage, the show does go on without her.
Roles are shuffled at the last minute, and poor Cynthia finds herself center stage. The play begins, but midway through, Bettina rushes in, determined to reclaim her part. Mayhem ensues as the company scrambles to keep the show going.
The comedy opens Dec. 5 for three weekends at the troupe’s playhouse, 11150 Southeastern Ave. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $14 for children, students and senior citizens (ages 62 and older) and $16 for adults. Group rates are available for parties of 10 or more.
