Dickens given a kid-friendly twist in Norfolk

November 29, 2013 by  

‘A Christmas Carol’ is being presented by Theatre IV, featuring a timeless Charles Dickens classic for the entire family to enjoy. One of the most loved holiday stories and a seasonal favorite of many, multiple printing services may have been used to advertise this production to people in this community and surrounding towns and villages.

This adaptation of the storyline was created by Steve Perigard and the music and lyrics are by Paul Deiss. This version of the classic tale was created to be more suitable for children.

In this story, Mr. Scrooge, who is a grumpy and selfish man that does not believe in charity for the less fortunate, is visited by three wise ghosts that show him the past, the present, and the future so that he can understand how his actions will affect him, as well as others. This storyline has all the emotions one would expect, but has been adapted so that it is not too scary for the young people in the audience. Spectators can watch as Mr. Scrooge changes from one of the meanest men in town to one of the most loved.

The costs to attend this production range from $8 to $12 per person, and it will be performed on Wednesday, December 4, from 10:30 am to 11:30 am at the Roper Performing Arts Center located at 340 Granby Street in Norfolk, Virginia. To learn more about this production or to purchase tickets, please visit the Roper Performing Art Center website or call the box office during normal business hours.
