UTICA — Erase the stress of the holiday season with this delightful play where everything goes wrong in “The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of ‘A Christmas Carol’” by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr.
Directed by Marilee Ensign, the performance opens Friday, Dec. 7, at Players of Utica, 1108 State St.
Four ladies and one gentleman enthusiastically portray a dizzying array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren’t), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and rap their vocal cords around two original songs.
This holiday show will have audiences roaring with laughter.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7 and 8, and continues the following week Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13, 14 and 15, with matinees at 2 p.m. Sundays, Dec. 9 and 16.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $10 for students with valid ID. Get tickets by calling 315-724-7624 or online at playersofutica.org.
