Tom Harryman will bring “A Christmas Carol” to Festival of Trees
November 10, Muskegon Mich – The Muskegon Museum of Art’s annual Festival of Trees will feature two performances of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” on Friday, November 18 and Sunday, November 20, 2016.
Tickets are $15 per adult, $10 MMA member, $10 per student with college I.D., and $5 for 15 years and under. Ticket prices include Festival admission. Tickets can be purchased in the MMA Gift Store or by phone at (231) 720-2580.
Muskegon Community College instructor and professional actor, Tom Harryman will perform this classic holiday story that is filled with humor and pathos, spirits and sinners, Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and more. Adapting the story into a one-man performance, Harryman will bring to life to the wondrous world and the colorful characters created by Dickens.
The original production of Harryman’s adaptation was directed by the MCC Center for Theater Director, Sheila Kulp Wahamaki with original designs by Richard Oman, Jeanette Wahr, Brian Goodman, and Harryman.
This dramatic story-theatre style production will be presented in the Museum’s intimate auditorium as a complement to the Festival of Trees and the start of the holiday season.
“Harryman breathes life into the story by weaving classic characters in and out of his narration. His ability to create many characters with body and voice is astounding.”Kim Harsch, The Muskegon Chronicle, 12/2/06.
A special cocktail hour in the Festival galleries, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., will precede the Friday night performance.
