Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of

A Christmas Carol

By David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr

Those zany ladies of the Dramatic Society are back again, this time to present their interpretation of Charles Dicken's classic Christmas story.  As always, despite their earnest attempts to pull it off flawlessly, things (and people) go awry.  There are a couple of original songs.

Actors will play various roles. Please bring CV and head shot; be prepared to read from a script.

Gordon: long-suffering stage manager, frozen-faced and monotonous when acting; any age
