The traditional fall play has been replaced with a winter one: “A Christmas Carol”, which has officially been cast. It boasts a diverse ensemble of 25 actors who will play numerous featured roles, yet to be differentiated, while Phong Nguyen ’20 has been cast as Ebenezer Scrooge.

“[I’m] terrified,” Nguyen blurted when asked how he felt about his first lead role. “I never expected this.”

Director Lauren Darby’s method of casting was an intentional part of her interpretation of the production.

“I’m most excited for exploring this show in a creative way,” Darby said. “It has been done so many times before, [so] there has to be something that makes it new and interesting… It’s not just a cheerful Christmas tale, there’s a lot more to it.”

Puppetry, dancing, singing, and creative interpretation are just a few of the details students can look forward to in this upcoming production. “A Christmas Carol” will perform December 6-8.
