The Dayton Playhouse is proud to bring the holiday musical “Scrooge!” to the stage December 9 – 18. The play is being directed byJennifer Lockwood, with musical director Ron Kindell, and choreographer Debra Strauss.
Renowned writer-composer-lyricist Leslie Bricusse has adapted the classic Charles Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol, into the hit musical “Scrooge!” The musical closely follows the classic story with the miserly Ebenezer undergoing a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. Lockwood has assembled a talented cast to perform this beautiful adaptation.
In conjunction with the production of “Scrooge!”, the Playhouse will host a toy/collectibles raffle. One of the toys is a reproduction of a toy automobile, which was made inDaytonin 1902. The original toy was made by DP Clark Toy Company. The reproduction was made and donated by Dick Cummings and Burt Saidel, both of Oakwood. Cummings and Saidel are active volunteers atCarillonParkand have worked on many of the restorations at the park. Cummings and his wife Dorothy have donated 190Daytonantique toys toCarillonPark. Other items in the raffle will include a Breyer’s Winter Belle – 2011 Holiday Horse collectible donated by Dan Hall and a Victorian doll donated by Blue Turtle Toys.
