Commonweal Theatre Company presents A Christmas Carol


Fri, Nov 16th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, MN — The Commonweal Theatre Company presents its own distinctive telling of the classic holiday story, A Christmas Carol, November 23 – December 23 with previews beginning on November 16. Commonweal’s imaginative take on this classic brings to life the people, sights and sounds of Scrooge’s world and his ultimate choice to liberate himself from a terrible fate. First developed by the Commonweal Theatre Company in 1999, the theatre’s minimalist approach to the tale instantly became an audience favorite.

“This is such a wonderful part of the Christmas tradition for so many,” says director Scott Dixon, “and this year, we’re excited to bring a brand-new re-imagining to the stage – a Victorian fantasy to underscore Scrooge’s journey to reconnect with his own humanity. The message for me in this story is that it’s never too late for healing, never too late for forgiveness.”

The ensemble cast features Commonweal’s resident artists Megan Pence, Daniel Stock, Adrienne Sweeney and Jeremy van Meter with Paul Steffens of the Apprentice Company. Also appearing on stage are area youth performers Alida Berg (Lanesboro), Kaj Spencer Berg (Decorah), Esme Decker (Lanesboro) and Alex Mathison (Preston).

This production of A Christmas Carol will be stage managed by Carolyn Fast, who leads a design team consisting of Lisa Kudas (sets), Amanda McGee (costumes), Gary Danciu (sound), Kit Mayer (lights), and Stef Dickens (props). Commonweal Apprentice Company Member Ethan Bjelland serves as Assistant Director. There will be discounted preview performances on November 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. and November 18 and 23 at 1:30 p.m. followed by post-performance discussions with the cast and director. A Christmas Carol officially opens the evening of November 23 at 7:30 p.m., with an opening night post-show reception in the Commonweal Events hall. On Thursday, November 29, the Commonweal Theatre will offer its Free Fillmore/Houston County Night performance. All residents and employees with Fillmore and Houston County addresses receive free admission to the show, but seats fill up fast so reservations are strongly encouraged.

From November 16 through December 23, Commonweal will be collecting new art supplies (such as markers, crayons, coloring books, paint sets, etc) to be gifted and delivered in time for the holidays to kids at Mayo Clinic’s Eugenio Litta Children’s Hospital. Each patron wh .....
