r Charles Dickens wrote a story about a miser called Scrooge who is visited by ghosts from the past, present and future which transformed him into a kinder and warmer person during the celebration of Christmas. This story written in 1843 to revitalize Christmas traditions in London has become synonymous with our special season of love and giving. As adapted by Director Mark Shipley it has become an evening of music, tears, and laughter at the recently remodeled Angelus Theater in Spanish Fork.
Mark has directed and produced over 200 stage productions and his favorite is Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. The show going on right now at the Angelus Theater is his 25th time to direct a production of A Christmas Carol. Mr. Shipley has brought together a great cast of seasoned performers and a few new people aspiring to excel in the theatrical arts. With 10 Christmas songs in a two-act play with 18 actors and carolers, this program keeps your attention for two hours, including music by local artists during intermission. As conceived by Charles Dickens it will revitalize the spirit of Christmas in you and your family. The costumes are magnificent, and the actors do a wonderful job with their parts. It is an amazing production that you will have to add to your list of family Christmas activities.
