Age Old Classic coming to Johannesburg
VR Theatrical expands to collaborate with various artists under the banner Crewworks, to bring to the stage Charles Dickens’ Evergreen tale of redemption, A Christmas Carol, with Jason K. Ralph as Scrooge, and Naret Loots as Everyone-one-Else, in this 2-hander adaptation by Elizma Badenhorst.
Bah, Haumbug! The famous exclamation of Ebenezer Scrooge will be heard this Christmas season at Pieter Toerien’s Studio Theatre between 27 November and 7 January.
This classic holiday favourite will come to life as you have never seen it before, wearing a brand new interactive jacket featuring animation and original music that promises to also be a sumptuous banquet for the eyes, ears and imagination. With original music by Wessel Odendaal, animation by Naret Loots, voice overs by Christopher Dudgeon and direction by Elizma Badenhorst, this play is a sensory delight for any tired soul.
Introducing several ghosts and characters from his past, present and future, the play takes us on an emotional journey from the old Scrooge’s tight-fisted, miserly ways, to the new Scrooge, spreading goodwill and cheer through his generous spirit.
A perfect outing for the entire family, this play is bound to become a family tradition!
