Repentance, Redemption and Radio: Community Theater performs holiday classic
By Cassie Lennox
As December brings about a close and a new year is on the horizon, it is common to reflect on all that has transpired. Some of us relive the past months to revel in a wonderful year. Others may be focused on living life in the present, now moment. And then there are those who look ahead to the future, planning resolutions and hoping for change in the new year.
It is natural for the past, present and future to meet up at this time of year, and they also combine in the Charles Dickens holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol,” where the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the true meaning of Christmas.
The Central Wisconsin Area Community Theater (cwACT) will bring this holiday staple to life in their rendition of “A Christmas Carol Radio Show,” with performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 15 and 16, at Sentry Theater.
“I am really excited that we are doing this story for this show,” said Renee Wiedmeyer, director of the performances. “We have an incredible, diverse cast from all different walks of life who are coming together to put on a nice, family-related performance that lets people escape for an hour. Anybody will enjoy it, that’s why I chose to direct it.”
