A Christmas Carol - Coolidge Theatre

Christopher Schario lives in Maine and serves as Executive/Artistic Director of The Public Theatre, an Equity theatre in Lewiston/Auburn. Before moving to the Great North Woods, Christopher enjoyed life as a professional actor, director, and teacher from his rent-controlled apartment in New York City. He has a BFA in acting from Ohio University and an MFA in directing from Carnegie-Mellon. He thanks his Co-Artistic Director, Janet Mitchko, and their precocious daughter, Emily, for being a part of the ride.
Focusing on Dickens’ powerful language, humor and warmth, this charming version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL simply and directly tells the story of the redemption of a human soul. The play follows the ever-powerful story of Scrooge, a lonely miser, who, through the help of spirits and visions from his past, present and future, finds a second chance to become a loving, generous human being. Adapted for a company of six actors, accompanied by a fiddler, the play requires a minimum of sets, costumes and props. It begins with a child reading the story for the first time. As the scenes are played out behind him, the child becomes totally caught up in the story and is finally invited by the other characters to enter the play as one of them. With traditional carols and English folk tunes creating the proper atmosphere, the world of Scrooge, Fezziwig and Tiny Tim comes alive, igniting the holiday spirit for young and old alike.
